National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP)

No Child Left Behind (NCLB) Legislation pertinent to the National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP)

 
Each state that applies for Title 1 funding must include in its annual application an assurance that it will comply with all requirements of the No Child Left Behind Act of 2001. One compliance area addresses the requirement for states and local educational agencies (LEAs) to participate in NAEP assessments, if selected for the sample(s).

Missouri applies for this federal funding for educationally disadvantaged students; therefore, we must meet the requirements as outlined in the NCLB legislation.
