Alabama’s National Test Scores Still Low, But Not Last

Results from the National Assessment of Educational Progress, or NAEP, released Tuesday, show Alabama’s scores in fourth- and eighth-grade reading and math remain unchanged from 2015, the last time the tests were given.

Scores at the national level were flat, too, except in eighth-grade reading, where scores increased. Scores in Alabama were significantly lower than the national average in all four areas tested.
