Dare to Compare

NCES offers a sample of questions on national standards benchmark testing (NAEP) for several subjects and grade levels. See how you compare with students nationally and from around the world. Pick a subject, grade level and how many questions you want to see (5, 10, 15, or 20).

The subjects tested include Civics, Economics, Geography, History, Math and Science. Grade levels vary by subject. After students answer the questions and get their results, they can click on the Results from Around the World or the National Performance Results icon next to each question to see the percentage of students nationally (and in some cases regionally) answered correctly. These icon links also provide more background facts on the subject question and links to related resources.
