National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP)

Also known as "the Nation's Report Card," NAEP is the only nationally representative and continuing assessment of what America's students know and can do in various subject areas. NAEP does not provide scores for individual students or schools; instead, it offers results regarding subject-matter achievement for populations of students (e.g., fourth-graders) and groups within those populations (e.g., female students, Hispanic students). National and state NAEP results are based on a sample of such student populations.

2015 National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) Assessment Window

The National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) will be administered to samples of fourth-or-eighth-grade students from January 26 through March 6. Students will be assessed in mathematics, reading, or science. Students will spend about 90 minutes completing the assessment, including answering questions in one subject area and answering questions about themselves and their educational experiences. Each school principal and the teachers of the subjects being assessed will also complete a questionnaire. As principals, you are essential partners in NAEP. You make an important contribution to NAEP by working closely with your students, teachers and staff and explaining why the assessment is important.
