NAEP is a federally authorized survey of student achievement at grades 4, 8, and 12 in various subject areas, such as mathematics, reading, writing, science, U.S. history, civics, geography, economics, and the arts.

The nature of NAEP is that burden alternates from a relatively low burden in national-level administration years to a substantial burden increase in statelevel administration years when the sample has to allow for estimates for states and some large urban districts. The 2011–2013 NAEP cycle will include increased participation of students with disabilities and English Language Learners. For 2011, there is a slight decrease in the number of burden hours from the previous system clearance, national-level administration will be conducted in 2012 involving a large reduction in burden, and a state-level administration will be conducted in 2013 involving a large increase in burden hours.
