National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP)The NAEP is the largest 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, US history, and Technology and Engineering Literacy. The NAEP assessments are administered uniformly using the same sets of test booklets across the nation, so NAEP results serve as a common metric for all states and selected urban districts. The assessment stays essentially the same from year to year, with only carefully documented changes. This permits NAEP to provide a clear picture of student academic progress over time.For more information about the NAEP please click here.
