NAEP is different from state assessments because it provides a common measure of student achievement across the country. The results of NAEP are released as The Nation's Report Card, which provides information about student achievement to educators, parents, policymakers, and the public.
In our school, the NAEP assessment will be given on Thursday, February 5th.
Each student in 8th grade has been selected to take a mathematics, reading, or science assessment. In addition to answering questions in one of these subjects, they will be asked questions about themselves and their educational experiences, such as the amount of reading they do and the types of classes they take.
