Wyoming Does Better On NAEP

Cheyenne, Wy – Wyoming fourth and eighth graders are above average. Students in those grades taking tests in math and reading scored higher than the national average this year. The results are from a test used to gauge student abilities across the country. Deputy State Superintendent, Annette Bohling says the Department of Education is proud.
Bohling also points out that the gap between the scores of white and native Americans children narrowed this year.
Over half of Wyoming students in grades four and eight took this test.
