Dr. Eric Mackey, Alabama State Superintendent of Education, has set improved performance on the National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) as a statewide goal. NAEP testing is used to generate The Nation’s Report Card, which is the largest ongoing assessment of what U.S. students know and can do. Alabama Department of Education staff have traveled across the state to present a NAEP overview, strategies, and resources to local leaders and teachers. You will find information, strategies, and resources for improved student performance on NAEP by following the links below. NAEP testing will be an important metric in the future for gauging Alabama’s progress in teaching Mathematics, Science, and English Language Arts.
