Mississippi’s fourth grade reading and math scores have improved on the latest Nation’s Report Card, bucking a national trend of declines

Results from the National Assessment of Educational Progress were released yesterday. The exams, given to a cross-section of students nationwide, are considered one of the most reliable ways of comparing academic performance across the state. Mississippi’s scores remain near the bottom on fourth and eighth grade tests of reading and math but only Mississippi and the District of Columbia showed significant improvement since 2013 in both reading and math scores among fourth graders. Scores were flat or down nationwide and there remains a significant gap between the scores of black and white students nationally and in Mississippi.
