Md. scores above national averages on report card

Posted: Updated:

Maryland public school students have scored above national averages in a national assessment.

Results from the National Assessment of Educational Progress for 2013 were released Thursday. The NAEP, which is known as the nation's report card, tests a sample of fourth- and eighth-grade students on reading and mathematics every two years.

While Maryland students improved in reading, math scores went down slightly, compared to 2011.

Fourth-grader scores for reading went from 231 to 232. The national average is 221. Eighth-grader scores in reading improved from 271 to 274. The national average is 266.

Fourth-grader results for math dropped from 247 to 245. The national average is 241. Eighth-grader scores went down from 288 to 287. The national average is 284.
