National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) Trial Urban District Assessment (TUDA)

The NAEP TUDA allows comparisons of student performance across urban school districts in large cities (i.e. cities with populations of 250,000 or more). DCPS had greater growth than any other large urban district in the country from 2011 to 2013.

The graphs below show the average scores of DCPS students on each NAEP TUDA from 2007-2013.
