Older students worse than younger students on standardized testing

June 19, 2003
Albany-Georgia's schoolchildren followed a national trend on a reading test given last year, younger students are getting better, older students worse.

On the National Assessment of Educational Progress reading test, given to 270-thousand students here, Georgia fourth-graders improved slightly, eighth-graders held flat, and 12th-graders slipped.

In all three grades, Georgia students trailed the national average. The test, which bills itself as "The Nation's Report Card," was taken by a sampling of students across the nation last year.
