Study: Over 75 percent of Fifth and Eighth Graders Not Proficient in 21st Century Skills

Study: Over 75 percent of Fifth and Eighth Graders Not Proficient in 21st Century Skills

8/23/2017 8:56:00 PM

A recent multi-year study by Learning.com revealed that 75 percent of fifth and eighth graders are non-proficient in 21st century skills. The research, which involved more than 110,000 students taking Learning.com’s 21st Century Skills Assessment from 2012-2017, measures the digital literacy skills outlined in the ISTE Student Standards. The company’s research also demonstrated that providing students with access to tools for building digital literacy skills can help close the skills gap.

In Texas, more than 10,000 eighth grade students from across 251 districts took Learning.com’s 21st Century Skills Assessment. After working with the company’s tools during the school year, non users had gains in proficiency between the pre- and post-test of 4.6 percent, while consistent users had gains in proficiency of 20.1 percent, more than four times that of non-users.

This study only confirms what any teacher who observes his/her students daily already knows.
