National test data show Nevada students still lagging behind, but there are bright spots
Recently discharged national testing information demonstrate Nevada still has work to do to get its understudies keeping pace with whatever is left of the United States, however the outcomes do uncover some splendid spots.
Results from the National Assessment of Educational Progress, a national test controlled by an arm of the U.S. Branch of Education, demonstrate that Nevada is as yet trailing the national midpoints in math and perusing.
"These outcomes are revealing to us two things," Nevada Deputy Superintendent Brett Barley told columnists on a Monday squeeze call. "One, despite everything we have far to go as a state to ensure all understudies are accomplishing at the level that we know they are able to do, but on the other hand there's some better than average news in this report."
Ninety-three Nevada center schools and 128 primary schools took an interest in the 2017 test, yet the outcomes are not separated by school or school region execution.
Hispanic understudies, who as per the Nevada Department of Education make up the biggest ethnic gathering in the state's schools, made the most critical additions since the test was last directed in 2015.
