NAEP Testing Febuary 9, 2017
Doctors Charter was chosen to administer The National Assessment of Educational Progress to selected 8 grade students on February 9; letters were mailed home before the winter break to those students. If your student is testing, please make every effort to have him/her in school and on time on February 9.
NAEP reports on results for different demographic groups rather than for individual students or schools. The results are included in The Nations Report Card but do not impact students' grades and are not reported to DCS. For more information, please visit http://nces.ed.gov/nationsreportcard/.
