What is NAEP?
The National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) is the only nationally representative and continuing assessment of what America's students know and can do in various subject areas. Assessments are conducted periodically in mathematics, reading, science, writing, the arts, civics, economics, geography, and U.S. history. Since NAEP assessments are administered uniformly using the same sets of test booklets across the nation, NAEP results serve as a common metric for all states and selected urban districts.
Below are some additional resources and information for parents and students:
Content Area Frameworks - Frameworks guide the development of NAEP and determine the content to be assessed
Information for Students - Encourage students to test themselves using NAEP questions. Show students where they can find answers to their questions about NAEP.
