NAEP: Looking Ahead--The NAEP-State Partnership. Workshop Summary
National Center for Education Statistics
In an effort to continuously advance the National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) program, the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES) convened a series of meetings focusing on the future of NAEP. Participants engaged in productive discussions and debates, exchanging forward-thinking ideas about what role NAEP should play five, ten, and twenty years down the road. This summary highlights a workshop held in January, 2013, in which state and district assessment staff met to develop and prioritize recommendations for NAEP within the following four key areas: (1) An Innovations Laboratory: Thirteen Goals for Assessment Programs of the Future; (2) Using Technology in NAEP and State Assessments; (3) Delivering Meaningful Results; and (4) Sharing Data, Knowledge, and Information. Working groups in each of these areas came to the consensus that NAEP must embrace the changing landscape of education assessment, identify the place it will hold in the next 10 years, and work quickly to position itself for the future.
