The NAEP website features a number of applications designed to give you quick and easy access to questions from previous assessments, performance comparisons, and NAEP assessment data for quick or complex analyses.
See more information about each tool below.
The NAEP Questions Tool (NQT) provides access to over 3,000 released questions from NAEP assessments in a variety of NAEP subject areas. You can see examples of students’ actual answers to constructed-response questions, with scorer comments. You can also see the percentage of students nationwide who answered each question correctly, and how students’ performance on a given question corresponds to their overall scores.
You can bookmark questions for later use, and use them to supplement classroom instruction. You can also build a quiz and administer it to your students and class.
The NAEP Item Maps use released questions from previous NAEP assessments to illustrate the knowledge and skills demonstrated by students performing at different NAEP achievement levels. The Item Maps answer the question, “What does it mean for students to be at Basic, Proficient, or Advanced achievement levels in terms of what they know and can do?”
You can link to released questions from the Item Maps and see performance information separated by student characteristics such as gender or race/ethnic group. You can also view state-level results in mathematics, reading, science, and writing; and review the results of any urban district participating in the NAEP Trial Urban District Assessment (TUDA).
Find key data for state/jurisdiction performance on NAEP assessments in mathematics, reading, writing, and science at grades 4, 8, and 12 (where applicable). View trends and demographics, download snapshot reports, and compare results for each state/jurisdiction with the nation and other states.
You can enhance your data experience with the following:
The NAEP District Profiles present key results from the NAEP Trial Urban District Assessment (TUDA) in mathematics, reading, writing, and science for grades 4 and 8. You can compare the performance of students in participating urban districts to the performance of public school students in large cities nationwide. You can also compare performance among participating districts, quickly see how a district performed over time, and download snapshot reports.
Data are displayed in charts and maps, making it easier to compare performance across jurisdictions. There are also links to the most recent state reports.
Test Yourself allows you to try out actual questions administered to students in the NAEP assessment. Choose a subject and a grade, read the questions, enter your answers, and see if you answered correctly. Your results will be displayed along with the performance data of the nation’s students. For mathematics and reading, district and state performance data are available for the questions you have answered.
