8th Graders’ Knowledge of U.S. History Hasn’t Improved According to Nation’s Report Card

The results of the U.S. History NAEP 2014 assessment reveal that students’ understanding of U.S. history, civics, and geography has not noticeably advanced since the last version of the test was given in 2010. “This interactive report presents average score and achievement level results of the nation’s eighth-grade students by gender, race/ethnicity, parental education levels, and other student groups.” Highlights and graphs are given for the three fields under examination; summary data tables with information back to 1994 can be accessed as well. PDF infographics are also online.We still have a long way to go.
