How would you do on National Assessment of Educational Progess (NAEP) history tests given to fourth, eighth and 12th-graders? You can go here to answer sample questions and find out for yourself.
Recently, results of the 2010 U.S. History Report Card (NAEP), given to samples of students, were released. Only 17 percent of eighth-graders scored proficient on the test, though that was the highest ever for eighth-graders. Performances by fourth (20 percent proficient or higher) and 12th graders (12 percent proficient or higher) remained the same as in 2006.
I'm [excited? relieved? embarassed?] to say that while I got all five sample questions on the fourth and eighth-grade tests correct, I missed one of the 12th grade sample questions. See how you do.
