National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP)

Study Overview


The National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) is the largest nationally representative, continuing assessment of what American students know and can do in subject areas including: math, reading, science, writing, arts, civics, economics, geography, United States history, and technology and engineering literacy. The measure is kept essentially the same from year to year, allowing the NAEP to create a clear picture of student academic progress over time. It includes student, teacher, and school questionnaires as well as specific information on special education and English as a second language students. The academic assessments are subject-specific cognitive items intended to measure student achievement in academic subjects.
