The National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) is the largest nationally continuing evaluation of the condition of education in the United States. NAEP has served as a national yardstick of student achievement since 1969.
Through The Nation’s Report Card, NAEP informs the public what American students know in various subject areas and compares achievement among states, large urban districts, and various student groups.
NAEP is a congressionally mandated program administered by the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES) within the U.S. Department of Education.
The National Assessment Governing Board (NAGB) oversees and sets policy for NAEP.
