NAEP Testing (Grade 4)
On 1/29/19, a sample of our 4th graders will be taking the National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP). Our children take tests for everything, but the NAEP—also called The Nation’s Report Card—is unique.
The Nation’s Report Card is a resource—a national wakeup call—because it offers a window into the state of our education system and what our children are learning. The results provide educators, policymakers, elected officials, and parents across the country with invaluable information regarding how our children are doing compared to other children in participating large urban districts, other states, and the nation.
When our children participate, they are helping to inform decisions about how to improve education in your state and in our country. The participation of your child can and often does lead to change.
