Peggy Carr, the commissioner of the National Center for Education Statistics, is anticipating a drop in National Assessment of Educational Progress scores as fourth- and eighth-grade students take national math and reading tests for the first time in the COVID-19 pandemic era.

“The likelihood that the scores would be anything but down is pretty small,” Carr said in a story by The 74’s Linda Jacobson.

Carr added, “It’s a new day in many ways. How tests are being administered, how students are being taught and how they learn in schools today is a little different than it was before COVID.”
