A new report shows fourth- and eighth-graders in Kentucky have made little academic growth in math and reading.

Commonly known as the "Nation's Report Card," the National Assessment of Educational Progress, or NAEP, is given every two years to a sample of fourth- and eighth-graders.

This year's results, compared with results in 2011, show average incremental gains of about one or two points on a 500-point scale in math and reading in both grades, although the one-point gain in fourth-grade reading was not considered statistically significant.

In Kentucky, there was no change in fourth-grade math, but there was a one-point decrease in eighth-grade math. As for reading, the report showed a one-point decrease for the fourth grade, and a one-point increase for the eighth grade.
