|Title:||Long-Term Trends in Student Science Performance|
|Description:||Data from the NAEP 1996 Long-Term Trend Science Assessment show mixed results since the first assessment. Scores for all three age groups fell and then rose. Both 9- and 13-year-olds showed an overall increase, but 17-year-olds showed an overall decline. Scores for white students were higher than for blacks and Hispanics for all three age groups, although scores for 9- and 13-year-old black students did improve, both absolutely and in comparison with white students.|
