NAEP Testing

Today, eighty-seven Woodbury 8th grade students are scheduled to participate in the National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) Testing. NAEP is given by the U.S. Department of Education and provides an assessment of what American students know and can do in key subject areas. It is the only ongoing nationally representative assessment that provides this valuable information.

NAEP has been given in schools nationwide for more than thirty-five years. You may have taken the test yourself when you were in school. The results are published in a report called The Nation's Report Card. These results provide reliable student achievement information for educators, parents, and other citizens.

The test will assess three subjects: reading, writing, and mathematics. Each child at the Woodbury test site will take the assessment for one of these subject areas.

We are excited about this opportunity for Woodbury students to help demonstrate the achievement of American students overall!
