The National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) has chosen Lamesa North Elementary 4th grade as a testing site for their national benchmark test on February 7th. The NAEP selects multiple schools across the nation every year to test students, glean overall student average scores and to set national standards for learning. NAEP is the only assessment that measures what U.S. students know and can do in various subjects across the nation, states and in some urban districts. Also known as the Nation's Report Card, NAEP has provided important information about how students are performing academically since 1969.
Texas's written state assessments (STAAR) as well as the passing standard for each state's assessment is set by the USDE by the data gained from the NAEP tests.
The NAEP organization will provide all tests and testing materials for the February 7th administration. However, Lamesa ISD will not receive the results of our students' test as the results are maintained at the national level and aggregated with other students' scores across the nation.
For more information about the NAEP testing at Lamesa North Elementary, please contact DeAnn Drake, Lamesa ISD Assistant Superintendent of Curriculum/Instruction; or North Elementary Campus Principal, Jennifer Stewart.
