The content of the Public-Use Data Tapes of the National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) is summarized and descriptions of recent research using the database are provided. Since 1969, NAEP has surveyed 9-, 13-, and 17-year-old students and occasionally young adults in assessments of achievement in art, career and occupational development, citizenship, literature, mathematics, science, writing and other learning areas. Over 400 national probability samples for approximately 2,500 respondents each are available, providing data on 150-250 variables. The format and content of the tape files are discussed. Focus areas for secondary research can be methodological, hypothesis- and model-testing, and descriptive or policy relevant studies. The summaries of research studies included briefly describe the researchers, affiliations, purposes, procedures, and results of their work. There are 23 summaries provided with availability information. Primary type of information provided by report: Results (Secondary Analyses). (CM)
