Trial Urban District Assessments


2005 to Present TUDA Jurisdictions

2003-2004 TUDA Jurisdictions

2002 TUDA Jurisdictions


The NAEP Trial Urban District Assessments (TUDA) are designed to explore the feasibility of using NAEP to report on the performance of public school students at the district level. As authorized by federal law, beginning in 2002 NAEP has been administered to samples of students in selected urban districts.

Sampled students in TUDA districts are assessed in the same subjects and using the same field materials as students selected as part of state and national samples. TUDA results are reported separately from the state in which the TUDA is located, but results are not reported for individual students or schools.
