The National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) is a federally-required assessment of what our nation’s students know and can do in subjects such as mathematics, reading, science, and writing. The main NAEP assessments are administered to a sample of students in each state in grades four, eight and twelve. Scores are only reported at the national and state level (and for a few large school districts outside of South Carolina). Results are not reported for individual students or schools. NAEP results provide the only true state-to-state comparison of student achievement. Learn more at the South Carolina Department of Education.
