National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP)
The National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) is the only nationally representative and continuing assessment of what America's students know and can do in various subject areas. Assessments are conducted periodically in mathematics, reading, science, writing, the arts, civics, economics, geography, and U.S. history. It serves as a common metric for all states and selected urban districts and as a result, permits NAEP to provide a clear picture of student academic progress over time. AIR’s experts provide support for all aspects of the survey, including:
- assessment development;
- providing a quality review on data files;
- producing data products and reports;
- providing training staff;
- developing informational materials; and
- providing quick turnaround analysis upon request.
In June of 2009, AIR released a new international grading index. Watch a video of the report presentation.
