  8. NAEP Overview Training Objective #1

  9. NAEP Overview • The National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP), also known as "the Nation's Report Card," is the only nationally representative and continuing assessment of what America's students know and can do in various subject areas. • NAEP is authorized by Congress and administered by the National Center for Education Statistics in the U.S. Department of Education.

  10. NAEP Overview • Since 1969, assessments have been conducted periodically in reading, mathematics, science, writing, U.S. history, civics, geography, and the arts. • Starting in 1990, NAEP assessments have also been conducted to give results for participating states. Those that chose to participate received assessment results that report on the performance of students in that state. • North Carolina has participated in the state-level assessments of NAEP since 1990.

  11. NAEP Overview • State-level NAEP: reading, mathematics, science, and writing • Results: national and state level • No individual scores for individual students or schools • Results: are available for subgroups of the population (e.g., race/ethnicity, gender, free/reduced lunch eligibility, etc.) • Reporting components: subject-matter achievement, instructional experiences, and school environment for populations of students

  13. NAEP Importance & Participation Training Objective #2

  14. NAEP Importance When NC fell behind the nation on the grade 8 reading NAEP assessment in 2005, the state board of education proposed literacy coaches at the middle grades. This initiative was added to the governor’s budget; we now have literacy coaches in the middle grades at several NC public schools. Literacy coaches have been in place since the 2006-07 school year. 14

  15. NAEP Importance In the 2005-06 school year, the state board of education increased the standard for proficient on the new edition of the EOG Mathematics assessments. The following is a quote from the press release: “The State Board of Education made good on months of discussion regarding the need to raise standards for student performance to more closely align with proficiency standards of the National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) and to be more challenging in preparing students for 21st century skills and learning.” 15

  16. NAEP Importance In the 2006-07 school year, the state board of education increased the standard for proficiency on the new edition of the Reading Comprehension EOG assessments. The Reading Comprehension EOG standards for student performance were also raised. 16
