National Assessment of Educational Progress
The National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP), also known as “The Nations Report Card,” is a program of the US Department of Education that provides information on state and national student achievement. It also provides information on how student achievement has changed over time. NAEP conducts state assessments in grades four and eight and national assessments in grades four, eight and twelve. In Additional, they conduct long-term trend assessments for nine, thirteen and seventeen year old students every four years. Results are based on a representative sample of students, and individual student or school results are not provided. For more information about NAEP visit http://nces.ed.gov/nationsreportcard/.
The No Child Left Behind Act, passed by Congress in 2001, requires that states and districts receiving Title I federal funding (to aid educationally disadvantaged students) participate in NAEP reading and mathematics assessments at grades four and eight.
