National Assessment Findings and Educational Policy Questions.
This paper addresses 11 commonly asked educational policy questions by referring to National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) findings in five learning areas. The paper is organized for quick reference to the 63 findings, which are, in turn, indexed to the NAEP reports in which they originally appeared. Findings in reading, literature, mathematics, writing and science are described and interpreted with a view toward encouraging others to include assessment data more frequently in educational policy discussions. The primary audience for the paper is busy education leaders who do not have the time to read the full NAEP reports and can profit from a short overview within a policy framework. Primary type of information provided by the report: results (Summary) (Utilization). (Author)
