“The Nation’s Report Card”

 

Wyoming 4th and 8th grade students who took the National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) in February and March of 2015 continued to achieve results above the national average in reading, math, and science.
 
Only two states/jurisdictions outperformed Wyoming’s 4th grade students in math, while 42 states/jurisdictions had scores lower than Wyoming’s.  In 8th grade math, six states/jurisdictions delivered scores higher than Wyoming’s students and 28 states/jurisdictions had scores below Wyoming’s.  Results for reading followed this trend with only three states/jurisdictions doing better than Wyoming’s 4th graders and only five states/jurisdictions with scores above Wyoming’s 8th graders.  Reading scores in 36 and 23 states/jurisdictions were lower than Wyoming’s 4th and 8th graders’ respectively.
 
Only two states/jurisdictions outperformed Wyoming's 4th grade students in science; 35 states/jurisdictions had lower scores than Wyoming's.  In 8th grade science, four states/jurisdictions scores were higher than Wyoming's while 29 states/jurisdictions had scores lower than Wyoming's.
 

The National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) is administered by the National Center for Education Statistics, which is part of the U.S. Department of Education.  NAEP is the largest continuous assessment of American students’ academic achievement.  Testing in reading and math for students in grades 4 and 8 is required every two years under the No Child Left Behind Act.  While NAEP results allow for subject specific comparisons across the country and over time, scores are not provided for individual students or schools.  In fact, per federal law, student names are not collected.  Instead, NAEP combines the responses for each demographic group to report the results for that group.
