States raise the bar for what it means to be proficient in reading and math
from U.S. News & World Report
Nearly every state in the U.S. has raised the bar over the last decade for what it considers grade-level achievement in math and reading, according to a new study from the National Center on Education Statistics. Because each state sets its own standards for what proficiency in a subject means, researchers at the center developed a formula that could compare each state's bar for proficiency on state assessment tests to the one used in the NCES-administered National Assessment of Education Progress. Using that score as a baseline, researchers were able to compare states to each other.
