NAEP – March 2, 2017

NAEP, or the National Assessment of Educational Progress, is often called the “Nation’s Report Card.” It is the largest continuing and nationally representative assessment of what our nation’s students know and can do in core subjects. NAEP is congressionally mandated and was first administered in 1969 to measure student achievement nationally. Teachers, principals, parents, policymakers and researchers use NAEP results to assess progress and develop ways to improve education in the United States.
