What do the assessments measure?

National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) for Grades 4, 8, 12
The National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) is often referred to as the "Nation’s Report Card". The Idaho State Board of Education included NAEP in the state testing program because it lets us see how students in our state perform compared to students in other states across the country. Students in grades 4,8, and 12 are randomly selected to participate and will be assessed in reading, math and science. Results are reported to and about the State. No results are reported to or about individual students or schools.
