These reports focus on the equity of students’ access to high-quality science and mathematics education. Although not designed primarily as an equity study, the 2018 NSSME+ provides data on some indicators of the extent to which students across the nation have equitable educational opportunities. To this end, data from the study were analyzed by four factors historically associated with differences in educational opportunities. When possible, data from the 2018 and 2012 studies were compared to examine whether the magnitude of differences between groups changed across the two time points.
