"Attention Parents of Students
in 4th and 8th Grade
Selected students in 4th and 8th grade will be taking
the National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) and represent both Pennsylvania
and GNA as part of our nations educational system. This assessment will
be given in February 2017. The results are used to help the government make important
decisions on ways to improve education in the U.S. The NAEP is also called "The
Nation's Report Card" and measures student achievement on a national level.
encourage parents to check out the following video on youtube introducing NAEP
to parents: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RurH739zdN0&feature=youtu.be.
In addition, please look at the NAEP website to review what participation in NAEP
means for your child and how results from the assessment are used- https://nces.ed.gov/nationsreportcard/parents/
