Science Scores on ‘Nation’s Report Card’ Rise in 4th and 8th Grade, Stay Stagnant in 12th

The 74 Million – Carolyn Phenicie

“Scores on national benchmark science tests rose for fourth- and eighth-graders from 2009 to 2015, while high school seniors’ scores stayed flat and science proficiency for all grades tested remained at basic levels for vast numbers of U.S. students. Achievement gaps on the National Assessment of Educational Progress, often called the Nation’s Report Card, between white students and students of color narrowed in 4th and 8th grade but remained largely unchanged in 12th grade. There was no gap between boys’ and girls’ scores in 4th grade, but boys continued to score a few points higher than girls in 8th and 12th grade.”(more)
