This March a select group of STEM Academy seniors will be asked to participate in the National Assessment of Educational Progress commonly known as NAEP. The NAEP test is used to help provide a common measurement of American students from all walks of life, and is where the statistics used to compare American schools to schools in other countries (which is why NAEP is often called the Nation’s Report Card).
More than half of the STEM Academy Senior class has been chosen by NAEP for the test scheduled on March 4, 2015. The test itself takes approximately 90 minutes and covers English Language Arts, Math and Science concepts.
The NAEP test does not provide individual information on students rather on subject matter achievement, the student’s instructional experience in classes and the school environment as a whole.
Students chosen to particpate will be notified at a special assembly on Friday January 20th during Advisory, be on the look out for your RemindMe invitation to attend!
