What's New?

Try out the new NAEP Questions Tool!

We've built a new tool that will let you

search for questions,

test yourself, and

create customized tests.

The new tool contains hundreds of math and reading questions and offers new features that the existing tool doesn't have. Try it out!

The new tool contains math and reading items back to 2005. By June 2014, all questions will be available in the new tool.


After each assessment, NAEP releases dozens of sample questions to the public—more than 3,000 questions are currently available. The tools featured here can be used to supplement classroom instruction, provide additional insight into the content of the assessment, and show what students nationally or in your state or district know and can do. For more information, print a quick reference guide about NAEP or find out how NAEP questions are scored.
