National Assessment of Educational Progress, Princeton, NJ.; Educational Testing Service, Princeton, NJ. Center for the Assessment of Educational Progress.
This compendium presents the extensive range of data (including nearly 300 tables and 11 figures of data) collected in the National Assessment of Educational Progress' (NAEP's) 1992 Reading Assessment. Chapters 1 and 2 of the compendium present the data in the context of the National Assessment Governing Board achievement levels, showing what students should be able to do at each of three levels: Basic, Proficient, and Advanced. Chapters 3 and 4 present the data in the context of the three purposes for reading--reading for literary experience, reading to gain information, and reading to perform a task. Chapter 5 presents examples of the regular and extended constructed-response questions used. Chapters 6 through 11 contain data related to the background questionnaires presented to students, teachers, and school administrators and discuss students' reading behaviors and attitudes, school and classroom characteristics, methods of reading instruction, teachers' reports of their professional development, students' attitudes towards the assessment itself, and characteristics of students' home life. Appendix A explains the procedure for anchoring the achievement levels in depth, presents examples of questions, and includes the results for each level at each grade. Appendix B describes participation rates for the trial state assessments. Appendix C presents co-statistics on state contextual background factors, and appendix D provides further detail about the assessment procedures. Appendix E contains standard deviations and percentiles for national demographic subpopulations. Appendix F contains examples of stories, articles, and documents used in the 1992 assessment and have been released for public review. (RS)
