National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP)

What is NAEP?

The National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP), also known as The Nation’s Report Card, is the largest continuing, nationally representative measure of student achievement in core subjects in grades 4, 8, and 12. The assessments follow the frameworks developed by the National Assessment Governing Board which specifies what a student should know and be able to do in a given grade. Since the assessments are administered uniformly across the nation, with the same set of test booklets, the NAEP results serve as a common yardstick.

NAEP Statewide Performance

NAEP informs the public about student achievement results, reveals trends over time, and compares performance among states, urban districts, and student demographic groups. In addition to the District’s participation in the traditional NAEP testing program, DCPS participates in the Trial Urban District Assessment (TUDA). The District of Columbia receives National, State, and TUDA level results.
