Data prior to 2008 represent scores on the Mississippi Curriculum Test (MCT). The MCT is designed to assess competencies in the areas of reading, language, and mathematics of Mississippi students in grades 2 through 8. Data from 2008 onward represent scores on the Mississippi Curriculum Test – 2nd Edition (MCT2). The MCT2 is based on the revised statewide language arts and mathematics curricula, and is administered to Mississippi students in grades 3 through 8. Differences in scores from 2007 to 2008 may represent a revision in proficiency level standards.

For this data, economically disadvantaged refers to students eligible for free/reduced lunch. The Department of Education defines this as 130% or 185% of the Federal poverty level for free and reduced lunch respectively.
