The State Writing Assessment

The 2011 writing assessment was based on a national sample only.

In 2007, in addition to assessing a national sample of students, NAEP examined the writing performance of eighth-grade students in 45 states and the Department of Defense Education Activity schools (DoDEA).

See a summary of the state-level results for the 2007 writing assessment.

For results from the 2007 writing assessment for a specific state, download the snapshot report.

See more information about the number of students in the NAEP writing state samples.

See our State Profiles database for key data about each state's student and school population and its NAEP testing history and results.
