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. This year, students participating in NAEP will be assessed in mathematics, reading, and science. Most students will take the assessment on tablets, while a small subset of students will take paper-and-pencil versions. Each student will take NAEP in one format and one subject only. Results will be released at the national, state, and TUDA levels for the mathematics and reading assessments at grades 4 and 8. National results will be released for the science assessment at grades 4, 8, and 12 and the mathematics and reading assessments at grade 12.
The Nation’s Report Card describes student achievement in ways that inform policymakers and educators. It’s a really valuable resource.
