‘Nation’s Report Card’ Results Are In For Idaho Students
The latest scores in the National Assessment for Education Progress (NAEP) provide some encouraging news for Idaho as schools continue working to boost student achievement in mathematics and reading. Nationwide, student scores have dropped since the NAEP assessments were last administered to fourth and eighth-graders in 2019. While Idaho scores also declined since 2019, they remain above national averages for eighth-graders and near the national average for fourth-graders.
Idaho students compare favorably with their national counterparts in the percentages who scored at
NAEP Basic or above in 2022:
• Fourth grade math -- 76 percent in Idaho, 74 percent nationally
• Eighth grade reading -- 74 percent in Idaho, 68 percent nationally
• Eighth grade math -- 71 percent in Idaho, 61 percent nationally
• Fourth grade reading -- 61 percent in Idaho and nationally
