CONCORD, N.H. (AP) - The latest batch of statewide education testing results show New Hampshire students have increased levels of proficiency in science in grades four and 11, and have remained steady in grade eight.

The state education department on Thursday released the May results of the New England Common Assessment Program for those grades.

Forty-nine percent of New Hampshire students tested scored proficient or better in science at grade four. In grade eight, 24 percent scored proficient or better, and in grade 11, 33 percent demonstrated proficiency.

Education Commissioner Virginia Barry said this is an indication that schools and districts have been successful in improving their science instruction, as well as aligning their professional development plans to support this work.
