The National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) is a national assessment of a representative sampling of America's students in grades 4 and 8 conducted by the National Center for Education Statistics. Results are only given at the state-level; no school or student results are provided.

NAEP is administered by a federally contracted assessment team that receives extensive training to ensure consistent administration across the nation.

The 2017 administration of NAEP will be administered for the first time as a digitally based assessment. 

The Juneau School District administers the assessment every two years. The following schools will be administering the NAEP during the 2018-2019 school year:

Auke Bay Elementary; Dzantik'i Heeni Middle School, Floyd Dryden Middle School, Glacier Valley Elementary, Harborview Elementary, HomeBRIDGE (grade 4 only), Juneau Community Charter School (grade 8 only), Mendenhall River Community School, and Riverbend Elementary.

Additional information regarding the NAEP can be found on the  Alaska Department of Education and Early Development website.
