Fourth- and eighth-grade students are making slight progress in math and reading, according to the recently released 2013 Nation's Report Card. The National Assessment of Educational Progress -- given every two years -- shows 42% of fourth-graders and 35% of eighth-graders scored at or above the proficient level in math. That's a one-point increase for both grades since 2011. Eighth-graders gained three points since 2011 in reading, but fourth-grade reading scores remained flat.
