Education for Citizenship: A Bicentennial Survey. Results Manual for Replicating the Citizenship Survey.
Education Commission of the States, Denver, CO. National Assessment of Educational Progress.
This manual, a supplement to the National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) kit "Education for Citizenship: a Bicentennial Survey" (ED 135 705), provides question-by-question results for the national sample of 13- and 17-year-old students tested. After presenting a brief summary of the background, the introduction describes the purpose of the citizenship assessment kit, which was to measure student achievement in citizenship and social studies. Chapter two reviews requirements for replicating the NAEP assessment model so that valid data comparisons can be made. The third chapter explains how to read the NAEP survey results, the exact meanings of the column headings in the tables, and the possible percentage of error. The final chapter suggests an approach for studying and analyzing assessment scores. The appendix consists of four question-by-question tables, showing the percent correct and standard errors for all 13-year-olds, all 17-year-olds, 13-year-olds in the eighth grade, and 17-year-olds in the eleventh grade. The students are further differentiated according to geographic region, sex, race (black or white), level of parental education, and size and type of community. This supplement contains no summary level results since they can be found in ED 135 705. (CK) Primary type of information provided by report: Results (Exercise Level).
