TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) -- A new report shows Kansas students continued to score above the national averages in tests of math and reading exams, though state gains were mixed.

The results Thursday on the 2013 National Assessment of Educational Progress are viewed as a report card for how well United States students are performing on key subjects. The tests are administered every two years.

Kansas Department of Education officials say the state's fourth-grade math score was 246 on a 500-point scale, unchanged from 2011. The eight-grade score was 290, unchanged from 2011. The national average was 241 in fourth-grade math and 284 in eighth-grade.

The reading score for fourth-graders was 223, down from 224 in 2011, while the eighth-grade score was 267, unchanged since 2003. The national averages were 221 and 266, respectively.
