National Assessment of Educational Progress
Westside Middle School will participate in the National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) on February 25, 2022. NAEP is the largest nationally representative and continuing assessment of what students know and can do in various subjects. NAEP is different from our state assessments because it is a common measure of achievement across the country. The assessment is administered by the National Center for Education Statistics, within the U.S. Department of Education. The results are released as The Nation’s Report Card, which provides information about student achievement to educators, parents, policymakers, and the public.
Only 100 8th grade students will be selected to participate. If your student was selected by NAEP, a letter will be sent home with them on Friday, January 21st. This letter will give specific information about the test and who to contact if you have questions.
