(NEW YORK) — The results from the Nation’s Report Card are out, and students won’t want to take this report card home.

The National Assessment of Educational Progress, also known as the Nation’s Report Card, revealed the average scores of eighth-grade students who took the test in 2014.

Only 18 percent of students received scores of “proficient” or better in U.S. History, 23 percent for Civics, and 27 percent for Geography.

Some of the test’s questions included filling in a checks and balances chart, and identifying shaded regions on a map.
