Time for your weekly dose of Stats That Stick! Here are some of the articles and their statistics that stuck in our minds this week.
Percent of 12th grade students who were able to explain results and draw conclusions from data collected from experiments during NAEP 2009: 11%.
According to a report released Tuesday by the National Center for Education Statistics, American students had a lot of trouble coming to conclusions and explaining results of science experiments during the science portion of the National Assessment for Educational Progress 2009. This indicates that many American students may be lacking the deeper learning skills that they will need to succeed in college and a career.
