NAT Findings Report 2023” takes in account representative random sample of 1,304 public schools who took the 2023 National Assessment Test (NAT) which was administered to over 23,000 Grade 4 and Grade 8 students across Pakistan. It assessed students on foundational literacy, English, Urdu, Sindhi, math, and science using scientifically developed multiple choice tests. On average, students scored highest in Grade 4 foundational literacy and Urdu/Sindhi, while performance was lowest in Grade 4 math, Grade 8 math, and to a lesser extent Grade 4 English. When compared to the 2019 NAT, results suggested a potential improvement in Grade 4 English but no clear change for Grade 8 math. The report analyzed performance distributions and identified areas where many students lacked even basic skills, pointing to the need for improvement in teaching and learning outcomes.
