Washington, D.C. (October 24, 2022) – Council of Chief State School Officers (CCSSO) Chief Executive Officer Carissa Moffat Miller released the following statement on the 2022 NAEP results released today.
“The 2022 NAEP results serve as another illustration of how severely the COVID-19 pandemic disrupted our education system and impacted learning for students across the country.
State education leaders are committed to accelerating learning and recognize it will take years to fully recover from the impacts of the pandemic. States have put interventions in place, and many of these began in earnest just before students took the 2022 NAEP exam. We are grateful to have another two years of federal COVID-19 relief funding that will allow these interventions to have their full effect on student learning.
Annual state assessments are an important tool that, alongside NAEP, offer more frequent and specific data on student outcomes. Though some 2022 state assessment results have shown promising signs of growth, the results also show that more is needed for students, particularly those most directly impacted by the pandemic and who are historically marginalized.
State leaders and CCSSO are committed to doubling down on programs that have been proven to help students achieve, like high-dosage tutoring, evidence-based literacy instruction, high-quality instructional materials and supports for student wellbeing.”
