The National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) is the largest nationally representative and continuing assessment of what America’s students know and can do in various subject areas. Assessments are conducted periodically in mathematics, reading, science, writing, the arts, civics, economics, geography, and U.S. history.
NAEP provides results on subject-matter achievement, instructional experiences, and school environment for populations and groups of students. When NAEP results are reported, they become part of “The Nation’s Report Card.”
We reviewed the Nation’s Report Card and accompanying data tools and visualization strategies to provide recommendations for design innovation.
