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. Since 1969, assessments have been conducted periodically in reading, mathematics, science, writing, U.S. history, civics, geography, and the arts.
The Alaska profile is available on the NAEP web site. This profile presents key data about Alaska's student and school population, NAEP testing history, and results. The profiles also contain links to the most recent state report cards for all available subjects.
In the 2014-2015 school year, a representative sample of grade 4 and grade 8 students took the NAEP in Alaska. No student or school results are given for the NAEP, only state-level results. The next NAEP administration in Alaska for reading and mathematics will be in the 2016-2017 school year.
