The Oregon Department of Education reports a dip in the scores in several subjects. Specifically, math scores were the lowest in the past twelve years.


Crystal Greene is the Communications Director for the Oregon Department of Education.


"The numbers are well above the national average, but we still saw scores dropping in reading and math and holding steady in writing and that's not the direction we like to go. We'd like to see more kids taking the exam and doing well. We saw a slight derease in the number of kids taking the test and as I said, a slight decrease in reading and math."


Test scores from Oregon students on the A-C-T tests released last month -- showed a slight increase in scores from last year.
