This issue of the Nation's Report Card for New Mexico highlights National Assessment of Education Progress (NAEP) Science results for 2005. Key findings for Grade 4 indicate that there has been no significant change since 2000 in the average science score; average science score for Grade 8 has dropped since 1996. There has been no significant change in either Grade 4 or Grade 8 in the percentage of New Mexico students scoring at or above either the "Basic" or "Proficient" level. In both Grade 4 and Grade 8, New Mexico's average science score was lower than that of the nation's public schools. Information for students with disabilities and English language learners are reported in tabular form. Comparisons with other states are displayed in both tabular and chart form. (Contains 1 figure and 4 tables.)
