Guidelines for Participation in NAEP

  • A sample of schools is randomly selected from the Common Core of Data (CCD), a national database of schools.
  • Not all the districts in the state, nor all schools in a district, nor all the students in the grade being assessed, are selected to participate in the assessment.
  • Proportion of all students excluded from any NAEP sample should not exceed 5%.
  • At least 85% of students classified as either students with disabilities or English language learners must be included in the assessment.
  • Unless 90% of the sampled students participate, a make-up session will be scheduled.
  • Parents must be notified before the administration of the assessment. Refusals must be in writing.
  • Scoring and reporting usually take approximately six months for Mathematics and Reading, 12 months for Science and Writing, and 18 months for special studies.
