SCOTTSBLUFF, Neb. -

Results are in for the Nebraska State Accountability (NeSA) test and Scottsbluff scored well overall. 

The test highlights the performance of students in reading, writing, mathematics and science. One of the biggest improvements was for 6th graders in the district, with a 23% increase in math in one year. 

Superintendent Rick Myles says that he is pleased with the scores.

"While the big numbers give us some good sense of big pictures, in the end we really look at how did individual students respond to the different kinds of instructional strategies that teachers are trying in their schools," says Myles.

Myles also says the increases are "nice and steady" and the district will continue to build on NeSA scores.
