Experience the 2024 Tutorials

NAEP digital assessments are administered on touch-screen devices that incorporate cutting-edge learning technologies. As part of each assessment, students are presented with a brief, interactive tutorial. The tutorial will teach them about the system and the tools available for use during the assessment.

To best replicate the experience of students on assessment day, please:

  • Access the tutorials with the Chrome browser*

Try a Technology and Engineering Literacy (TEL) Assessment Task

The TEL assessment measures whether students are able to apply technology and engineering skills to real-life situations. TEL is computer-based and uses interactive scenario-based tasks to gauge what students know and can do. Try out some sample TEL tasks from the recent 2018 assessment.

Try Science Interactive Tasks

Explore the hands-on tasks (HOTs) and interactive computer tasks (ICTs) from the science assessment.

HOTs provide an opportunity for students to demonstrate their ability to engage in science as scientists do by showing how well they are able to reason through complex scientific problems, plan and conduct scientific investigations, and apply their scientific knowledge in real-world contexts.

ICTs simulate natural settings and laboratories to allow students to virtually conduct experiments and demonstrate their knowledge of scientific methods, process, and procedures. Try a few tasks yourself!
