National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP)

NAEP is the largest nationally representative assessment of what students know and can do in various subjects (including mathematicsreadingsciencewriting, the artscivicseconomicsgeography, and U.S. history ). It is administered by the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), within the U.S. Department of Education. NAEP is different from our state assessment because it provides a common measure of student achievement across the country. The results are released as The Nation's Report Card, which provides information about student achievement to educators, parents, policymakers, and the public.
