NAEP:
The Nation’s Report Card
• NAEP is the Nation’s only monitor of what
students know and can do in various subject
areas
• NAEP is a survey designed to produce national
and state level results
• NAEP produces results for populations, not
individuals

NAEP Frameworks
• Each NAEP assessment is built around an
organizing framework, which is the blueprint
that guides the development of the
assessment instrument and determines the
content to be assessed.
• The High Schools That Work program develops
its assessments from the NAEP frameworks.
NAEP Frameworks
• Frameworks have been developed for:
– Reading
- Economics
– Mathematics
- Civics
– Science
- Foreign Language
– U.S. History
- Writing
– Geography
- Arts
Participation
• The Elementary and Secondary Education Act
(ESEA – formerly NCLB) requires
states/districts who receive Title I funding to
participate in the biennial NAEP assessment in
reading and mathematics at grades 4 and 8.
• Georgia law and State Board of Education
rules require participation in all NAEP
assessments.
School Sampling
• School samples are randomly selected from groups of schools
that have been stratified by variables such as:
– Region
– Extent of urbanization
– Minority enrollment
– Median household income
– Results of state achievement assessments
– Unique to the state/district
Student Sampling
• Student samples are randomly selected from each school
– All students are included
– New students also have opportunity to be included
– IEP guidelines may be disregarded
Contextual Background Variables
• In addition to assessing subject area knowledge and
abilities, NAEP collects information from students,
teachers, and principals about contextual or
background variables that are related to student
achievement:
– student questionnaires, which examine background
characteristics and subject area instructional experience;
– teacher questionnaires, which gather data on teacher
training and classroom instruction;
– school questionnaires, which gather information about
school characteristics and policies; and
– SD/ELL questionnaires, which provide information about
students within the sample who have disabilities or are
limited-English-proficient.
Analysis and Reporting
Average scale scores and achievement levels
reported for reading, mathematics, and science
– Scale Scores
• Subgroup comparisons (e.g., SD, ELL)
• State and regional comparisons
• Reading and Mathematics scale score range is 0-500
• Science scale score range is 0-300
– Achievement Levels
• Indicate the students within the total population, or
in a particular subgroup, that meet or exceed
expectations of what they should know and be able
to do
• Advanced, Proficient, Basic
Results
• State and national results only (No student,
classroom, school, county, or RESA results)
• Trial Urban District Assessment (TUDA) in Atlanta
Public Schools will report district level results
• State results are usually reported within six
months of the assessment cycle.
