The National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) is the only ongoing, nationally representative assessment designed to evaluate what America’s students know and can do in a variety of subjects, such as reading, writing, mathematics, and science. Also known as the Nation’s Report Card, NAEP was established by Congress in 1969 and is administered by the National Center for Education Statistics, a division of the U.S. Department of Education (ED).
Results from all of the latest state NAEP assessments are available on the CDE NAEP web page. NAEP results for all states and the nation, as well as a schedule of all NAEP assessments, are available on the ED’s NAEP web page .
