Working Draft


The Governing Board is currently in the process of reviewing and updating the NAEP Science Assessment Framework, which was last updated in 2005. Any updates will be implemented for the 2028 administration of the NAEP Science Assessment.


As part of the process, a working draft of the recommended updates is made available for public review and feedback prior to review, revision, and final approval from the Governing Board. Input from NAEP’s diverse range of stakeholders is an essential part of the process to update NAEP assessment frameworks.
