The Nation’s Report Card: 2022 U.S. History and Civics Release

In May 2023, the National Assessment Governing Board and the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES) hosted the release of the 2022 NAEP U.S. History and Civics results at the U.S. Capitol.

Results included national-level scores for eighth-grade students on the 2022 NAEP U.S. History and Civics assessments as well as insights into students’ learning experiences.

The event featured presentations of the results by NCES Commissioner Peggy Carr; discussion of the results between Carr and Patrick Kelly, a Governing Board member and government teacher; and questions from students and educators delivered from historical sites across the country.
