from U.S. News & World Report
American teens are adept at conducting scientific experiments, but only if they don't stray beyond the basics, according to assessment results released by the National Center for Education Statistics. Seventy-five percent of high school seniors successfully completed straightforward experiments as part of the 2009 National Assessment of Educational Progress science exam. When tasked with more complicated experiments, only 25 percent came to the correct conclusion.
