WHAT IS NAEP?
NAEP is the only continuing source of national data on student achievement at grades 4, 8, and 12 in key subjects.
NAEP is also the only source of comparable state-level achievement results in reading, mathematics, science and writing.
In addition, 21 large urban districts voluntarily participate in the NAEP Trial Urban District Assessment program (TUDA).
Find data for your state or participating urban district.
