The main trend is that all grades including kindergarten growing every year. Kindergarten started 2.4 and ended highest at 2.9 percent with a constant increase. grades 1-2 and grades 5-6 a little different trend, both at 1,5 percent in 1999 and a little bit in 2000.

Grades 3-4 a slow but steady growth all six years. It at 1.6 percent in 1999 and 0.1 every year except in 2003 when it 0.2 percent. Grades 7-8 at 1.6 percent and there for three years until they rapidly rose up to 2.2 and peaked at 2.5 in 2004.

This is a good report; here is how you can make it better: the coherence needs improvement, meaning the logical connection between sentences inside a paragraph and between paragraphs. Use more connective words (Furthermore, However, etc).

The grouping you’ve done is fine, but try to use more variations describing those statistics: use words such as numbers, figures, percentages, etc. The grammar and the spelling need some extra attention.Overall, this report seems worthy of Band 7
