8th Grade NAEP Testing
The National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) will be testing your 8th grade students on Thursday, February 14, 2019 at Sparks Middle School. NAEP is the only ongoing assessment of what our nation’s students know and can do in a variety of subjects.
In addition to conducting assessments, NAEP gathers information on school policies and characteristics using a school questionnaire. This questionnaire provides supplemental information about school factors that may influence students’ achievement, helping to make the NAEP assessment more accurate and complete. It is given to the principal or another official of each school that participate in the current NAEP assessment.
