Contact:Melissa McGrathmelissa.mcgrath@ccsso.org202-336-7034

CCSSO executive director Chris Minnich released the following statement in response to the National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) results released today. 

"The growth we are seeing across the country is exciting.  I believe it is an early indicator that the policies states are advancing are starting to have a real impact on student learning. States have been working diligently for a number of years to implement the Common Core State Standards and ensure that educators are prepared to help students reach these new standards.   The hard work is paying off. Tennessee, DC and Department of Defense schools for example, saw growth in all of their NAEP results. While the results across the country are not all good and signify that we have a lot of work to do, I am pleased to see the growth."
