This test manual presents the full results of the National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) survey of 1,300 17-year-old students on performance in five major basic life skills: (1) personal finance and consumer protection; (2) health maintenance; (3) interpersonal competence; (4) family responsibility; and (5) career development. In addition, some items measure citizenship and community resources. Mathematics, reading, and writing skills were excluded, since separate assessments are devoted to them. Tables display the survey results nationally, by region, and by sex; results for 17-year-olds in grade 11 are displayed separately. The first row contains the NAEP exercise number, the exercise part, and the correct response label (key). Row 2 contains the percentage of correct responses. Row 3 shows the standard error of the percentage. Adjustments have been made for low response rates in the latter half of each of the six test booklets. The six test booklets and corresponding answer sheets are also included. They can be used as discrete exercises for local assessment or as a controlled replication of the NAEP survey. If replication is the intent, reference to the Results Manual is essential. (CP) Primary type of information provided by report: Assessment Instrument (Released Exercises); Results (Exercise Level).
