#### Percentages of fourth-grade students at or above NAEP Proficient higher in 15 states compared to the nation's public schools

In comparison to the nation (public) in 2022,

• 15 states had a higher percentage of students performing at or above NAEP Proficient; and
• 15 had a lower percentage of students performing at or above NAEP Proficient.

The percentage of fourth-grade public school students performing at or above the NAEP Proficient level in mathematics was 35 percent nationally in 2022.

NAEP achievement levels are performance standards that describe what students should know and be able to do. Results are reported as percentages of students performing at or above three achievement levels (NAEP Basic, NAEP Proficient, and NAEP Advanced). Students performing at or above the NAEP Proficient level on NAEP assessments demonstrate solid academic performance and competency over challenging subject matter. It should be noted that the  NAEP Proficient achievement level does not represent grade level proficiency as determined by other assessment standards (e.g., state or district assessments). NAEP achievement levels are to be used on a trial basis and should be interpreted and used with caution. Find out more about the NAEP mathematics achievement levels

Use the  NAEP State Profiles Tool to compare NAEP achievement-level performance between states/jurisdictions and the nation (public) and to see trends in states/jurisdictions by NAEP achievement level.

See how percentages of fourth-grade public school students performing at or above the  NAEP Proficient level in mathematics in each state/jurisdiction compare to the nation by clicking on the state/jurisdiction in the map.
