Final NECAP Scores For New Hampshire Show No Real Change
Fresh results from New England Common Assessment Program tests, or NECAP, are in.
The New Hampshire Department of Education says student performance in math, reading and writing stayed essentially the same as last year.
The DOE says that while the percentage of students in the proficient or above level went up or down a few points in each category, the changes weren’t statistically significant.
Overall, 77% of students tested were proficient or above in reading. That’s down from 79% last year. 65% in math (down from 68%) and 58% percent in writing (up from 55%).
This is the last NECAP test for New England. Next spring, New Hampshire will see new tests administered by the Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium which will measure performance based on new Common Core standards.
