About

NAEP is mandated by Congress to provide a continuing evaluation of educational conditions in the United States through a fair and accurate measurement of educational achievement in reading, mathematics, and other content areas and is administered by the Assessment Division within the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES). The NAEP Research and Development (NAEP R&D) Team conducts studies that contribute to new methodologies for analyzing and operationalizing large -scale assessments. In addition, NAEP R&D promotes the access to and dissemination of this line of research through trainings, internships and a cooperative agreement program. All of these efforts support NAEP in maintaining its reputation as the “gold standard of student assessment".
