Education Commission of the States, Denver, CO. National Assessment of Educational Progress.
This volume contains social studies assessment data and exercises from the National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP). NAEP is an information-gathering project that surveys the educational attainments of 9-year-olds, 13-year-olds, 17-year-olds, and adults (ages 26-35) in 10 learning areas, one of which is social studies. Different learning areas are assessed every year, and all areas are periodically reassessed in order to measure educational change. This volume contains all the social studies assessment data which have been collected, scored, and analyzed to date and copies of approximately one-half of the social studies exercises that have been used in past assessments. Not included in this document are those social studies exercise tests which the National Assessment will administer again in the future to determine whether the performance level of Americans has improved or declined. However, the objectives that were measured by these unreleased exercises and their percentage results are presented. For exercises that have been released, this volume provides an exact copy of the exercise, complete documentation about administration and scoring procedures, and the percentage results for the national sample and each of the subpopulation reporting groups. Researchers who need detailed information about the exercises and state and local educators who want to use NAEP exercises in their own assessment program will find this documentation useful.
