National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) Information (8th Grade)
Oakdale Middle School will participate in the National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) on March 2, 2017. NAEP is the largest nationally representative and continuing assessment of what students know and can do in various subjects. It is administered by the National Center for Education Statistics, within the U.S. Department of Education. NAEP is different from our state assessment because it provides a common measure of student achievement across the country. The results are released as The Nation's Report Card, which provides information about student achievement to educators, parents, policymakers, and the public.
Eighth grade students (will/might) take an assessment in one of the following subjects: civics, geography, mathematics, reading, U.S. history, or writing. The assessment also asks students questions about their daily routine and their educational experiences. For example, students are asked if there is a computer at home and about the amount of reading they do. Student responses are anonymous, and they provide context and meaning to the assessment results. Please visit http://nces.ed.gov/nationsreportcard/about/booklets.asp to review sample questions.
