NAEP Current Events
No students in Nebraska were selected to participate in 2023 National NAEP.
Nebraska students will be selected to participate in NAEP 2024. The window for the 2024 State NAEP Assessments is January through March. Districts selected for NAEP 2024 will be notified in the fall of 2024. NAEP participation by all states for fourth and eighth grade students is required by the U.S. Department of Education. The required assessments include math and reading; however, students are tested in only one subject. Not all fourth and eighth grade students test, because NAEP uses a stratified random sampling method. This means that the students selected to take NAEP are representative of Nebraska’s student population.
