New NAEP scores are out this morning:  No increase for 4th graders from 2007 to 2009; 8th graders are up two points.  From the IES release:

For the first time since the assessment began, 4th graders showed no overall increase at the national level, although they scored significantly higher in 2009 than when the assessment began in 1990.  For 8th graders, scores in 2009  were higher when compared to both 2007 and 1990.  These nationwide patterns also held for most student subgroups.

The report is here.  EdWeek’s Sean Cavanagh is first out of the box with analysis here.

  1. I’ll bet the scores on the state proficiency math tests are just fine. I’ll bet the scores on the state proficiency math test have been showing improvement over the years too. I’ll bet the scores on the state proficiency math test will be even better next year.
