How many "far off track" 4th- and 8th-graders catch up to college and career readiness before they graduate?

Our latest report examines the difficulty of catching up students who are far behind in school, and whether addressing the issue in the earlier grades is more effective than waiting until high school. Using state and ACT assessment data, we compare students who are “far off track” in Grades 4 and 8 to determine if closing these academic gaps earlier is likely, if it makes a difference, and in which subjects doing so appears to have the most impact.
