PHOENIX — When it comes students worldwide, Arizona’s are middle of the road, a study published Thursday said.
For the first time ever, data from the National Assessment of Educational Progress and the Trends in International Mathematics and Science Study was analyzed to see how students in the United States compare to their peers overseas.
To make analysis simpler, the National Center for Education Statistics set the average score at 500.
When it came time to take a look at Arizona, its students were found to be almost dead-on average.
The average score for an Arizona student in math was 502. The highest was 613, set by students in Korea, followed by Singapore, Taiwan, Hong Kong and Japan, respectively.
The average score for an Arizona student in science was 507. The highest was 590, set by students in Singapore, followed by Taiwan, Hong Kong, Japan and Massachusetts, respectively.
