NAEP IN THE NEWS

Read how writers, reporters, and educators are talking about The Nation's Report Card.

 
  • Learn about cities in Texas where students from low-income families are outperforming students from high-income families and how NAEP data was used by researchers to develop a first-of-its-kind database that could help policymakers better understand achievement gaps in the U.S.
  • Read about how students in the western U.S. performed on the NAEP arts assessment. Reporter Carolyn Jones dives into the data and includes thoughts from Patricia Wayne, program director for Create CA, as well as Laura LoGerfo, the Governing Board’s assistant director for reporting and analysis.
  • Check out how NAEP contextual variables are used to demonstrate how students attending high-poverty schools tend to have fewer STEM resources and opportunities.
