Did anyone else notice this article in today's Boston Globe? Bay State students again top scores on national test - Local News Updates - The Boston Globe

Overall, it looks like the state did a nice job on this test. It's OK if we post positive news on this forum once in a while!

We hear a lot of talk about MCAS in MA, but I'm not as familiar with this test. Shame on me - married to a Boston teacher . Although, in comparison to MCAS, I don't recall this test being discussed around the dinner table.

Does anyone have more information on this test? Is there a web page where it dives into more details?

The National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) has frequently been called the "Nations Report Card." It is the only national assessment of what America’s students know and can do in various subject areas.

As a result of the "No Child Left Behind" legislation, all states are required to participate in NAEP. ...not every school participated... the link has a better explanation.
