National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP)

National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) The gold standard of assessment, NAEP is the largest continuing and nationally representative measure of what our nation’s students know and can do.

NAEP is a U.S. Department of Education program, congressionally authorized to measure student achievement. The results of NAEP are released as The Nation’s Report Card, and are available for the nation, states, and in some cases, urban districts. Teachers, principals, parents, policymakers, and researchers all use NAEP results to assess progress and develop ways to improve education in the United States.
