National Assessment of Educational Progress. Summary of Report 2. Citizenship: National Results--Partial. Observations and Commentary of a Panel of Reviewers.
Education Commission of the States, Denver, CO.
Although issued by the National Assessment program, this collection of interpretations of its citizenship findings does not necessarily reflect the views of the program. It is not the purpose of the program to interpret its own findings, but rather to encourage widespread examination of the assessment results through such efforts as this document. The panel of reviewers and their reviews are: 1) Jean Dye's National Assessment Citizenship Findings which draws implications of the findings for public school curricula; 2) Harold H. Eibling's Comments on the Preliminary and Partial Findings of National Assessment in the Area of Citizenship commenting on the assessment of citizenship itself; 3) Tobe Johnson's Critical Response to the National Assessment; 4) Lawrence E. Metcalf's The Citizenship Education Assessment: Strengths of the Report; and, 5) Thomas Rondeau's Reaction to National Assessment - Citizenship. For the complete report of the citizenship results, by age groups, see SO 000 899. (DJB) Primary type of information provided by report: Results (Interpretation) (Summary) (National).
