Student math scores are down from pre-COVID levels

By Huntington Learning Center

Math and reading scores for students across the country are down following years of disrupted learning during the COVID-19 pandemic. According to a report released  by the National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP), the results show a slight dip in reading scores and the largest drop in math since testing began. 

"The results from the ‘Nation's Report Card’ paint a reality of the impact of the pandemic, the importance of consistent learning environments and the need for individualized learning plans to help students succeed. Now more than ever we need to continue to support the work happening in our schools and supplement students where they need additional attention. Huntington Learning Center will be using this new data to target areas for future investment, expand our offerings and resources and do everything we can to work with parents, students and schools to continue our mission to give every student the best education possible.” - Anne Huntington Sharma, President and a Board Member of Huntington Learning Center.

What can parents do?

  • Do daily check-ins with your student to discuss their workload and the content they are learning about at school. This is a great opportunity to help them prioritize their tasks and also find out where they may be concerned about their readiness or familiarity with the content at hand. 
  • Engage your school community to find out what resources are available.
