As leaders at all levels make important decisions on education policy and funding, easy access to useful data about student achievement by nation, state, and urban district is important. The Governing Board, whose membership consists of local and state policymakers, provides direct links to results and resources for The Nation’s Report Card.
The Governing Board created an Ad Hoc Committee on NAEP Parent Engagement, whose recommendations include strategies to increase parent awareness about the urgency to improve student achievement and reduce achievement gaps by race, ethnicity and income levels. We also offer parents a host of information and resources about The Nation’s Report Card and student performance.
Teachers, principals, researchers and others can explore the many facets of The Nation’s Report Card, which informs us how our students are performing at the national, state, and district level. NAEP results, test questions, frameworks, and instructional factors can be accessed and used. You can even test yourself and your students in important subjects that NAEP covers.
The economy and the workforce are intricately linked to education quality and job skills training. Recognizing the link, the Governing Board developed a new Business Policy Task Force, which provides input to the Board in shaping policy for NAEP and in expanding outreach to the business community.

The Nation’s Report Card is the country’s largest nationally representative assessment, whose results in key subject areas have extensively been covered in print, broadcast and online outlets. NAEP provides not only results from reports but also opportunities for journalists to explore data and background variables to analyze student performance in variety of ways.
