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 at grades 4, 8, and 12. NAEP informs the public about student achievement results, reveals trends over time, and compares performance among states, urban districts, and student demographic groups.

NAEP is administered by the National Center for Education Statistics. The National Assessment Governing Board is an independent, nonpartisan organization created by Congress to set policy for and oversee NAEP. The Governing Board is committed to making NAEP an accessible, useful resource for parents and educators.
