Strategic Vision for NAEP, 2017 – 2020

The National Assessment Governing Board is charged by Congress to inform the public about what America’s students know and can do in various subject areas, as measured by The Nation’s Report Card. This information helps our nation understand where more work is needed to improve students’ education.

In November 2016, the Governing Board adopted a Strategic Vision to expand NAEP’s impact by providing information about how students are doing in the most innovative and effective ways. The vision, intended to focus the Governing Board’s efforts through 2020, includes two broad goals: inform and innovate.
