The National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) is administered to students across the nation by trained NAEP representatives and with the support of school coordinators. It takes approximately 120 minutes for students to complete an assessment.
Assessments are set up and administered by a team of approximately three to four NAEP representatives. The National Center for Education Statistics (NCES) provides all necessary equipment, including student tablets with an attached keyboard, stylus, earbuds, administrator tablet, and a router that provides a closed wireless network for the devices to communicate. Schools are asked to provide space, desks or tables, and access to electrical outlets. Schools do not need to provide internet access. Two sequential sessions are conducted at each sampled school, with approximately 25 students in each session.
Students complete a tutorial that helps them understand how to use the tablets and system tools, as well as how to enter their responses. Survey questionnaires are also administered on tablets to students that record information about their learning experiences.
