The National Assessment Governing Board (NAGB) establishes the schedule for the National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) assessments and release of assessment results to the nation, states, and districts.

All assessments take place between January and March, except for long-term trend (LTT) assessments. LTT assessments take place from October to May when administered. The current assessment calendar is as of November 22, 2021 and may be subject to change.
