Explanation: Note: that the data are reported as ''percentages'' rather than actual scores as stated in the table heading. Since this is the last year that the centers will be reporting data, we took a retrospective look and compared a sample of students in 2003 with a second sample of students in the same schools in 2004. Those sampled schools had students who benefited from TA provided by the Comprehensive Centers in 2004. We compared the percent of 3rd grade students in these low performing schools that reached proficiency level in reading on State assessments in both 2003 and 2004.
