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%).
New Hampshire students continue to improve academically, according to the results of the latest round of standardized tests.

The test shows that 67% of all students are proficient in math, up two percentage points from last year. 79% are proficient in reading, and only 54% are proficient in writing.
