Statement of National Center for Education Statistics Commissioner Peggy G. Carr on A Pragmatic Future for NAEP, a National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine report– I thank the National Academies (NASEM) for its work on this report and appreciate that many of its recommendations aligned so well with work already underway in the NAEP program. The National Center for Education Statistics (NCES) worked collaboratively with its parent organization, the Institute of Education Sciences (IES), to ensure that this work, commissioned in celebration of IES’s 20-year anniversary, was relevant to NAEP’s maintenance of its status as the gold standard of large-scale assessments.

NAEP: Meeting Today’s Needs and Building a National Assessment for the Future– We are still just beginning to understand the many ways that the COVID-19 pandemic has affected our schools, our students, and all who work in education. We all faced and continue to face countless challenges. For us to move forward, we need to understand how deep these challenges run, how the pandemic has affected student achievement, and how our education system can adapt, innovate, and be a better tool for improving student outcomes.
