The NCES collects and presents tools for analyzing the National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP). The NAEP State Profiles page features “Snapshot Reports” that include state-level data for the percent of fourth- and eighth-grade students designated as “proficient” or “advanced” in reading, disaggregated by participation in the NSLP. These state-level estimates are based on representative samples, and data are released for odd-numbered years.
