NAEP Data Tab

This section presents information regarding:

NAEP administers a state level assessment in Mathematics and Reading every two years. The most current results are from the year 2015.

There is no recognized set of national academic standards. Each state sets their own academic standards and definitions of proficiency. National Assessment of Educational Progress results use a common assessment framework across all states which cannot be directly compared with M-STEP results for the same grade. NAEP and M-STEP define their performance level descriptions differently and performance levels do not correspond between the two assessments. NAEP is given in the Winter, M-STEP is given in the spring.
