NH students hold steady in statewide tests

Posted: Updated:

CONCORD, N.H. (AP) - The latest batch of statewide education testing results show New Hampshire students holding steady in math, reading and writing.

The state education department on Friday released the fall results of the New England Common Assessment Program for grades three through eight and high school.

Statewide, performance in all three categories was about the same compared to last year. In reading, 77 percent of students tested scored at the proficient or above proficient level, in math, 65 percent scored proficient or above, and in writing, 58 percent were proficient or above.

Commissioner Virginia Barry says more students at each grade and in each subject area are achieving grade-level standards than were at the beginning of the testing program.
