National test scores show achievement growth has largely leveled off for Ohio students, much like the rest of the country.
The National Assessment of Education Progress, or NAEP, exam is given every two years to 4th and 8th graders. The test has measured student progress across states since the 1990s.
But in Ohio last year, there wasn’t much progress to be measured. Scores for Ohio 4th and 8th graders largely mimicked 2015 results, which national test administrator Cindy Carr says was also true for the country.
