New NAEP Video Introduces "Nation's Report Card" to Students

Are you looking for a simple, clear way to describe the National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) to your student or child? Trying to figure out why NAEP is a valuable addition to the other standardized tests your student takes during school hours? This new five-minute video features high school students talking about NAEP and why participation in this national assessment is valuable. Watch the video to learn more about what NAEP is, what subjects are covered, how long the assessment takes, and how results are used.

You can find the video on the NAEP Students Page (click on NAEP is Important!), which also has more information and resources designed for students, such as answers to selected students' frequently asked questions about NAEP, games, study tools, and more. NAEP is administered by the National Center for Education Statistics.
