Did one of your parents help you with your homework when you were a student? Did you have a tutor? Did you do your homework with classmates who would help each other?

Well, nowadays, there are plenty of websites and apps which offer free help to students who are having trouble completing their homework. One of those websites,, recently sent me a press release about a study they conducted to determine which states’ students need the most and least help with their homework assignments.

The results? Well, there’s good news and bad news. The good news: Nevada did not make the top 5 in any of the categories they highlighted for lowest scores. The bad news: Nevada did not make the top 5 in any of the categories they highlighted for highest scores either. The Silver State did rank #8 out of the fifty states in the U.S.A. for needing the most help with homework.

According to the Brainly Staff who gathered, wrote, and published the results of this study, some of our neighboring states fared much worse. For example, Arizona had the lowest high school graduation rate. New Mexico shows up with the lowest math test scores. And California claims the honors for the state with the largest high school dropout rate.

You can see which states made the top 5 in categories such as: lowest/highest high school graduation rates, lowest/highest high school dropout rates, lowest/highest math test scores, lowest/highest college attendance rates, lowest/highest reading scores, lowest/highest test anxiety rates, and more information, by CLICKING HERE.

  • 5) Mississippi

    “The Magnolia State” ranks fifth. Heck, I couldn’t spell Mississippi correctly until I graduated sixth grade! (not really)

  • 4) Arizona

    Our neighbors in “The Grand Canyon State” rank fourth.
    Thank goodness they wrote the name of the state on the blackboard or I might not have guessed that it was
    Arizona from the shape.

  • 3) Louisiana

    Uh oh, were you able to guess that was Louisiana from the shape on the blackboard? “The Bayou State” is home to “The Big Easy” of New Orleans, but apparently, homework isn’t too easy. They rank third in needing the most help.

  • 2) Oklahoma

    Sing it with me! “OOOOOOOO-kla-homa where the wind comes sweepin’ down the plain!” Nice job! I was a little pitchy though. “The Sooner State” would probably rather not rank second in this study though.

  • 1) New Mexico

    The students in “The Land of Enchantment” apparently are not too enchanted with doing their homework on their own. They claim top “honors” for requiring the most help with their homework according to
