Drier Educational Systems, Inc., Highland Park, NJ.
The reading comprehension tests, one for nine-year-olds usually in grade 3 and one for thirteen-year-olds usually in grade 7, were developed from released items on the National Assessment of Educational Progress. The tests were constructed to assess student achievement against a national norm, by comparing individual student scores to the national average or to the average for inner city, medium city, or suburban students. The multiple-choice tests are used to measure literal and inferential comprehension and are partly criterion referenced. (The level 9 test contains 36 items, while the Level 13 test contains 36 items. Administration and scoring instructions, as well as an answer key are included.) (MH) Aspect of National Assessment (NAEP) dealt with in this document: Assessment Instruments (Released Exercises).
