Getting students “Game Day” ready!

New Mexico is Rising with NAEP2019

While touring the state, members of the New Mexico Public Education Department (NMPED) learned that the vast majority of New Mexicans did not fully understand the relationship between NAEP results and our state’s national education ranking. Therefore, the NMPED is launching the #NAEP2019 campaign.

Every New Mexican should champion #NAEP2019 and help our students to become Game-Day ready to succeed on the assessment. Teachers, students, parents, policy makers—everyone should know why #NAEP2019 is important.
