NSF's Math and Science Partnership program shows increased student proficiency.

Analysis of early data from NSF's Math and Science Partnership (MSP) program shows K-12 student proficiency rising in conjunction with new educational approaches. Forty-eight partnerships and more than 30 other tool-development and evaluation projects comprise NSF's current MSP portfolio.

Student achievement at 130 schools participating in the NSF MSP.

Student achievement at 130 schools participating in the NSF Math and Science Partnership program is illustrated. The percentage of students "at or above proficiency" is shown for two school years. The percentage change is shown atop each pair of bars. The "*" denotes a statistically significant change at the 0.05 level (i.e., 1 in 20 chance the change results from random chance).
