NAEP Data on Disk. 1994 Almanac Viewer [CD-ROM].
National Center for Education Statistics (ED), Washington, DC.
In 1994, the National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) assessed the reading, U.S. history, and geography knowledge and skills of a nationally representative sample of students in grades 4, 8, and 12. The NAEP also assessed representative samples of students from 44 states and jurisdictions in reading at grade four. This Almanac Viewer is a DOS-based menu-driven search system for examining 1994 NAEP results. The almanacs are cross tabulations of important demographic subgroups such as gender, race and ethnicity, and parental education crossed with student proficiency data or background information from students, teachers, and schools. Users can browse menus to select data by grade level, subject area, sample, instrument type, and type of results (percentages, proficiency scores, or percentiles). Almanac tables can then be viewed, printed, or saved to a file. Instructions for installing the viewer are provided. TYPE OF SURVEY: Sample Survey.
