This notice comes to us from Karen M. Sibert:
Fourth- and eighth-grade students in the District of Columbia have demonstrated improved performance in math on the National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) for the sixth consecutive time.
In 2011, the District of Columbia was one of only four states to show improvement in both fourth- and eighth-grade math.
“I am proud of the gains made by our DC Public School and public charter school students in math on the NAEP,” said DC Council Chairman Kwame R. Brown. “I offer my congratulations to the students and the staff who have supported them.”
Also known as “The Nation’s Report Card,” the NAEP measures students’ knowledge and skills in mathematics and reading across the United States and is administered every two years.
