Reading proficiency standards are an important indicator of whether students have acquired the knowledge necessary to succeed with more advanced classwork in higher-grade levels. A study by the University of Chicago found 3rd grade reading level to be a significant predictor of 8th grade reading level and 9th grade course performance, as well as graduation and college attendance.

This indicator evaluates the reading proficiency of mid-elementary readers. Data is available from the state’s Department of Education. Participants are required to report for at least the largest public school district serving the jurisdiction.
