Thank you for your interest in working on the National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP)!

Background On NAEP
NAEP is a representative measure of trends in academic achievement of U.S. elementary and secondary students in various subjects. It is the largest continuing and nationally representative assessment of what our nation's students know and can do in select subjects. Teachers, principals, parents, policymakers, and researchers all use NAEP results to assess progress and develop ways to improve education in the United States. Read more about the assessment and its history at

Westat, one of the world’s leading providers of educational research, conducts NAEP on behalf of the U.S. Department of Education. Read more about Westat and its impact on research at
