The Nation's Report Card: Reading and Mathematics 2011. National Assessment of Educational Progress at Grades 4 and 8. Findings in Brief. NCES 2012-459
National Center for Education Statistics
The National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) mathematics assessment measures students' knowledge and skills in mathematics and students' ability to apply their knowledge in problem-solving situations. At each grade, students responded to questions designed to measure what they know and can do across five mathematics content areas: number properties and operations; measurement; geometry; data analysis, statistics, and probability; and algebra. The NAEP reading assessment measures students' reading comprehension by asking them to read selected grade-appropriate materials and answer questions based on what they have read. At each grade, students responded to questions designed to measure their reading comprehension across two types of texts: literary and informational. This paper presents the results of the 2011 NAEP assessments for reading and mathematics. [For related reports, see "The Nation's Report Card: Mathematics 2011.
