The National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) is administered in grade 4. It is often called the "Nation's Report Card", and is the largest continuing and nationally representative assessment of what our nation’s students know and can do in core subjects. NAEP is congressionally mandated.

NAEP asks the same questions and is administered in the same way in every state nationwide, providing a common measure of student progress and making comparisons between states possible. NAEP helps states answer such questions as:

  • How does the performance of students in my state compare with the performance of students in states with similar resources or demographics?
  • How does my state's performance compare with the nation's?
  • Are my state's gains in student performance keeping up with the pace of improvement in other states?

NAEP tests small samples of students at grades 4, 8, and 12 for the main assessments, and at ages 9, 13, or 17 for the long-term trend assessments.
