Release of results from "the nation's report card" has been delayed.

The most recent reading and math results from the National Assessment of Educational Progress, which were due out last month, have been pushed back to March or April of next year, according to the National Center for Education Statistics. That includes both the national and the state-by-state results.

Wrinkles caused by transitioning NAEP from a paper-and-pencil exam to one that's given on tablets or digital devices seem to be the culprit. Administering tests in different formats can alter what's being measured in not-insignificant ways.
