Study says students are falling behind, showing a decline in math
A July study from a student assessment organization showed that while there are signs students are starting to rebound from pandemic-affected learning, there has still been a decline in achievement.
An NWEA study showed declines of 5 to 10 percentile points in math and 2 to 4 points in reading when comparing data from the 2021-2022 school year to pre-pandemic years.
Researchers used data taken from the math and reading assessments of 8.3 million students from third to eighth grade for the study.
NWEA advised that there is “a long road to recovery still ahead” for students.
