The National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) is the largest nationally representative and continuing assessment of what America's students know and can do in various subject areas. The results provide educators, policymakers, elected officials, and parents across the country with invaluable information regarding how our children are doing compared to other children in participating large urban districts, other states, and the nation. NAEP 2021 student data collection has been postponed until 2022. Please see 2021 NAEP: COVID-19 Planning and Resources for further updates.
The Nation’s Report Card describes student achievement in ways that inform policymakers and educators. It’s a really valuable resource.
