Forty-nine Bellport Middle School students participated in the National Assessment of Educational Progress exam in mathematics, reading and science on Jan. 30. All students received a certificate of participation and were granted the equivalent of 1.5 hours of community service.

According to the NAEP website, the NAEP exam is the only national assessment that adequately measures students’ knowledge in various subjects. Also known as the Nation’s Report Card, NAEP has provided information about how students across the nation are performing academically since its inception in 1969. Participation in the exam helps the country to make informed decisions about how to improve the educational system.
