Challenger Selected for NAEP Assessment

Challenger Selected for NAEP Assessment

The National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) is the largest continuing and nationally representative assessment of what our nation’s students know and can do in core subjects. NAEP is congressionally mandated, and was first administered in 1969 to measure student achievement nationally. Teachers, principals, parents, policymakers, and researchers all use NAEP results to assess progress and develop ways to improve education in the United States.

Approximately 100 randomly-selected eighth grade students will be selected to take portions of the NAEP math or reading assessment.  In addition to subject-area questions, students voluntarily complete NAEP survey questions.  These questions provide valuable information about participating students’ educational experiences and opportunities to learn both in and outside of the classroom.  More information about NAEP survey questions is available at under the section “What Questions Are on the Test?”

The information collected is used for statistical purposes only.
• Students' grades will not be affected. • There is no need to study in preparation.
• Students may be excused for any reason, are not required to complete the assessment, and may skip any question.
• While the assessment is voluntary, NAEP depends on student participation to help policymakers improve education.

The students who have been randomly selected will take home a parent notification letter.  Any questions or concerns can be directed to our school's testing coordinator, Sara Cline at
