National Center for Education Statistics

Kansas has some of the highest education achievement standards in the country, but students are struggling to reach that high bar.

The new report from the National Center For Education Statistics standardized state proficiency assessments for math and reading in 2015. For eighth grade, Kansas had the highest benchmark for proficiency in both reading and math out of the states evaluated.

The National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) creates The Nation’s Report Card, a document that informs the public about the academic achievement of elementary and secondary students in the United States.  The testing information available at this time compares 2009 test results to those gathered in 2011.
