    NAEP Delaware logo

    The National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP), also known as the Nation’s Report Card, will be administered this school year to students across the country in grades 4 and 8.  Approximately 15,000 students in Delaware will take the 120-minute reading and math test between January 30 and March 10, 2017.

    NAEP is the largest nationally representativ​e and c​ontinuing assessment of what America's students know and can do in various subject areas. Paper-and-pencil assessments are conducted periodically in mathematics, reading, science, writing, the arts, civics, economics, geography, U.S. history and in Technology and Engineering Literacy (TEL).

    Beginning in 2017, NAEP will begin administering digitally based assessments (D​​BA) with additional subjects added in 2018 and 2019.

    Congratulations to all the Delaware schools who have earned the title of being 100% NAEP Ready in 2017 . These schools will receive a banner in January to celebrate the efforts and hard work of their students and educators:

New this year, students in NAEP participating schools are eligible to demonstrate their vested commitment to success in NAEP by taking online NAEP sample tests in both Reading and Mathematics.
    • NAEP Sample Test
      Students enter their student test ID (provided to each school's NAEP Coordinator) to retrieve the test
      • Schools that receive 100% participation in the NAEP sample tests will receive a 6 foot by 3.5 foot display banner and recognition for being ‘100% NAEP Ready – Delaware 2017.’
      • Schools will be presented the banners by the Delaware Department of Education and featured in Department communications.

    More information for schools can be accessed by logging onto the NAEP MySchool website (www.mynaep.com). A username and password have been distributed to the NAEP coordinator at each sampled school.

    • 2011 NAEP Mathematics Study
      Special study in mathematics and science for selected grade 8 students to link the NAEP scale to the Trends in International Mathematics and Science Study (TIMSS) scale so that states could compare the performance of their students with that of students in other countries. The study was conducted in 2011 with eighth-grade students in all 52 states/jurisdictions that participated in the NAEP mathematics and science assessments​.
