National Assessment of Educational Progress
The National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP), also known as "the Nation's Report Card," is administered by the U. S. Office of Education to representative samples of students in grades 4, 8 and 12 in the areas of reading, mathematics, science, writing, U.S. history, civics, geography, and the arts. NAEP does not provide scores for individual students or schools; instead, it offers results regarding subject-matter achievement, instructional experiences, and school environment for populations of students (e.g., fourth-graders) and groups within those populations (e.g., female students, Hispanic students). NAEP results are based on a sample of student populations of interest.
Participation in NAEP is required by the No Child Left Behind act for all schools and districts that receive Title I funding.
