National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP)

  • The National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP), also known as "the Nation's Report Card," is the only nationally representative and continuing assessment of what America's students know and can do in various subject areas. The NAEP selects schools and students in grades 4, 8 and 10 using a sampling model to determine participation in reading, mathematics, science, writing, U.S. history, civics, geography and the arts assessments. Additional information can be found on the NAEP website.
