Education Commission of the States, Denver, CO. National Assessment of Educational Progress.
Published six times a year, the newsletter keeps educators abreast of assessment studies; forthcoming reports; staff announcements, meetings, and services rendered; notes of interest; and publications. The newsletter allows for dissemination of current information of the National Assessment which provides data to measure student knowledge, skills and understandings in ten subject-matter areas. The lead article provides findings from a recent report entitled "Reading Rate and Comprehension" which showed that there are few rapid readers with good comprehension; and, there is a pattern of slow readers with poor comprehension. Other articles preview a literature report assessing literary understanding to be released in December, 1972; describe the National Assessment Exercise Development Department; and reflect on the revised citizenship objectives for the 1973 assessment. Brief information is included on contract bids awarded for 1974, and an announcement of the Social Science Education Consortium plans for an interpretative report of citizenship goals data. Lastly, publications available through the NAEP office are listed. Those interested in receiving the free newsletter should get on the mailing list. A related document is ED 050 996.
