NAEP assessments are administered to students in public, private, and charter schools at grades 4, 8, and 12. Use this dashboard to do the following:

  • Explore the latest national results in all the NAEP subjects for students attending public, charter (a subset of public), private, and Catholic (a subset of private) schools.
  • Explore the percentage of different student groups by the type of school they attend.
  • See how students' educational experiences vary by school types.

NAEP results for public school students are reported for the nation, states, and participating districts; and results for private school students are reported at the national level only. Results for charter schools are available for the nation, and also for states and all districts with reportable results. Select Charter School and either States or Districts from the Customize Data Tables drop-down menus to see if charter school results are available for your state or district.

Item Map

NAEP item maps help readers understand student performance by showing what students know and can do at different NAEP achievement levels. For each assessment, example questions are "mapped" onto the NAEP scale for that subject with more difficult questions at the top of the map and easier questions at the lower part of the map. To see an item map of overall student performance, choose a subject, grade, and assessment year in the NAEP Item Map Tool. The resulting item map will show question descriptions at various score levels. Questions that have been released to the public are hyperlinked to the NAEP Questions Tool.

NAEP Program and Participation

Learn more about the NAEP program and why participation is important.

NOTE: In 2018 the National Assessment Governing Board issued a revised Policy Statement clarifying that the NAEP Proficient level is not intended to reflect grade-level performance expectations but is specific to performance on NAEP assessments. Read the Governing Board Policy Statement here. NAEP scales were derived separately by subjects and grades, and therefore scores cannot be compared across subjects and grades. Results are not shown for data points where the sample sizes are insufficient to permit a reliable estimate or where data are not available. Black includes African American, and Hispanic includes Latino. Race categories exclude Hispanic origin. In compliance with new standards from the U.S. Office of Management and Budget for collecting and reporting data on race/ethnicity, additional information was collected beginning in 2011 so that results could be reported separately for Asian students and Native Hawaiian/Other Pacific Islander students. Students who identified with two or more of the racial/ethnic groups (e.g., White and Black) would have been classified as "other" and reported as part of the "unclassified" category prior to 2011, and classified as "Two or More Races" in 2011 and later assessment years. See more information about student groups and the data availability of these groups at https://nces.ed.gov/nationsreportcard/guides/groups.aspx. See more information about NAEP survey questionnaires at https://nces.ed.gov/nationsreportcard/experience/survey_questionnaires.aspx. Although the estimates (e.g., average scores or percentages) are shown as rounded numbers in the charts, the positions of the data points in the graphics are based on the unrounded numbers. Not all apparent differences between estimates are statistically significant.
