WFIS is asking that all schools invited by NAEP to participate in the national test please do so. The participation of private schools in the National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) is essential for examining the picture of K-12 education in the United States and informing future policy decisions.
Private schools represent about 24 percent of schools nationwide and educate about 9 percent of the students. Therefore, to have a complete picture of the academic achievement and progress of the nation’s students, selected schools must participate in NAEP.
School and student selection is randomized. Schools can expect to be contacted during late summer and early fall. The assessments’ administration will likely occur in February and March 2024. Sampled schools enjoy flexibility in selecting the date their students’ assessment is conducted.
WFIS has spoken with school leaders selected in previous years, all of whom report the experience as wonderful and with no challenges.
