Eighth Graders Had Record Low U.S. History, Civics Scores In 2022

Eighth graders had the lowest U.S. history scores on record in 2022 and among the lowest civics scores, the Department of Education revealed this week.
The Education Department on Wednesday released the first federal history and civics testing data since before the COVID pandemic. The data shows that the last few years have erased the progress made since the 1990s on eighth grade students’ knowledge of history and civics.
Only about 13% of eighth graders met proficiency standards for U.S. history last year, according to the National Assessment of Educational Progress, also called the Nation’s Report Card.
