PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — Oregon fourth and eighth-graders performed about as well as they did two years ago on a national math and reading test.

The students tested in Oregon kept steady even as national results dipped.

Those are the results, released Wednesday, from the National Assessment of Education Progress, commonly known as the Nation’s Report Card. The test is administered every two years to a representative sample of fourth- and eighth-grade students.

On math and fourth-grade reading, Oregon students performed about as well as their peers nationally.

On eighth-grade reading, Oregon’s scores were above the national average. Only four states had scores in that category that were statistically higher than Oregon’s.
