  • NAEP Testing 

    During the 2019–2020 school year, the NAEP long-term trend assessment will be administered in schools across the country. NAEP long-term trend assessments measure student performance in mathematics and reading, and have allowed the performance of today’s students to be compared with students since the early 1970s. The table on page 1 describes the 2019–2020 assessment program for which national results will be available. Assessments in mathematics and reading will be conducted with nationally representative samples of 9-, 13-, and 17-year-old students. Selected students will participate in paper-based mathematics or reading assessments, and each student will be assessed in only one subject. NAEP representatives will bring all materials and equipment to the school on assessment day. Students will spend up to 90 minutes completing the assessment, which includes transition time, directions, and completion of a short student questionnaire. The questionnaire provides valuable information about the students’ educational experiences and learning opportunities both inside and outside of the classroom. There will be no school or teacher questionnaires for the long-term trend assessment.
