How do Arizona students rank compared to the rest of the world in math and science? 

A new study that links standardized tests in the U.S. to tests in other countries found that Arizona students near the international average in math and science.

The tests that were linked together for the study – the National Assessment of Educational Progress, also known as the nation's report card and the Trends in International Mathematics and Science Study, given in more than 50 countries. 

Students in Korea took the top score in math, followed closely by students in Singapore; while those same Singapore students ranked top in science followed by students in Massachusetts. 

While students in Arizona appeared average, a separate nation's report card states Arizona students performed the lowest nationally in science.
