Few Students Show Proficiency in Science

On the most recent nationwide science test, about a third of fourth graders and a fifth of high school seniors scored at or above the level the federal Department of Education calls proficient, according to resultsreleased on Tuesday.

Only one or two students out of every 100 displayed the level of science mastery that the department defines as advanced, the government said.
