Assessment Process

The way the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES) creates, administers, scores, and reports the National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) assessments is complex and involves several assessment design phases and stages, many of which overlap one another. This process ensures that The Nation's Report Card meets the highest standards of measurement reliability, validity, and accuracy.
