The results of the NAEP mathematics assessment present a broad view of what our nation's students know and can do in mathematics. The assessment measures students' knowledge and skills in mathematics and students' ability to apply their knowledge in problem-solving situations. Every two years, students at grades 4 and 8 are assessed in mathematics and reading, and students at grade 12 are assessed periodically. Results of the 2017 digitally based assessment in mathematics at grades 4 and 8 will be released in the winter of 2018. Results of the 2015 assessments at grades 4, 8, and 12 are available now at www.nationsreportcard.gov. Links to the results are below. Find out more about the assessment and its framework.
