January 25 - March 19, 2021
Due to COVID-19, NAEP has been postponed until spring 2022.
The NCES Associate Commissioner released the following statement: "Challenges such as variable instructional models, health and safety concerns, and restrictions on access to schools are expected to reduce NAEP’s ability to validly, reliably, and safely collect and report NAEP data in 2021. The postponement will move mathematics and reading at grades 4 and 8 to 2022."

For the state-level assessments, NAEP will administer mathematics and reading assessments to students in grades 4 and 8.
