National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP)

CONTACT :: Andrea Cole Faulkner , NAEP State Coordinator, Analysis and Reporting

The National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) has served American educators as an information resource for more than 40 years, providing reliable profiles of what our students know and can do in key subject areas. The Nation’s Report Card, as it has come to be known, is the only ongoing project to monitor trends in our students’ achievement at the elementary, middle and high school levels.
