National Assessment of Educational Progress: Mathematics. Released Exercises from the 1981-82 Assessment.
Education Commission of the States, Denver, CO. National Assessment of Educational Progress.
Exercises from the National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) third mathematics assessment are provided in this released exercise set. Exercises were administered to 9-year-olds, 13-year-olds, and 17-year-olds. Some exercises were administered to only one age group, others to two or more age groups. The set is divided into two parts: text and appendices. Part 1 of the text briefly explains NAEP's assessment procedures and describes the documentation provided for the various kinds of exercises in the set. Part 2 describes rationales behind the development of attitudinal and experience questions. Part 3 describes the taxonomic and content classifications used to develop and report on cognitive exercises for the assessment. (Only about one-fourth of these exercises have been released since NAEP will readminister the others in the future to determine whether the performance level of young Americans has changed.) The remainder of the set consists of copies of the released exercises and documentation for each exercise. Documentation includes reference numbers, content/process objectives, timing/administration data for each group, and sorting guides for open-ended items. Attitudinal and experience exercises make up appendix A, followed by cognitive exercises in appendix B, and data for cognitive exercises in appendix C. (JN)
