2 What is NAEP? The National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) is the largest continuing and nationally representative assessment of what our nation’s students know and can do in core subjects. A survey designed to produce national, state, and select urban district level results. – NAEP results are for populations of students, not for individual students nor schools. – Measures student performance nationally and reports changes over time. – Allows comparisons between states and the nation.

3 NAEP Administration NAEP is administered over a six-week period. – For 2011: January 24 th – March 4 th About 3,000 students in approximately 100 schools are selected in Iowa and other states for each grade and subject. – Each student is only assessed in one subject area. – Accommodations are provided as necessary for students with disabilities and English language learners.

4 NAEP Results The results of NAEP are released as The Nation’s Report Card. – The report card provides national, state, and district-level results, results for different demographic groups, inclusion information, and sample questions. NAEP Results are reported in two formats – Average Scale Scores Numeric scale 0 − 500 on mathematics and reading assessments Scores cannot be compared across content areas – Achievement Levels Categorical scale Below Basic, Basic, Proficient, Advanced
