The NAEP 1994 Technical Report.
Allen, Nancy L.; And Others
The 1994 National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) monitored the performance of students in American schools in reading, U.S. history, geography, mathematics, science, and writing. The sample involved more than 135,000 public and private school students who were 9, 13, or 17 years old and/or in grades 4, 8, and 12. This technical report provides details on instrument development, sample design, data collection, and data analysis procedures for the 1994 NAEP. Steps involved in the NAEP are described from planning through the creation of edited data files. Detailed substantive results are presented in a series of reports by the National Center for Education Statistics. Part I of this report presents details of the design of the assessment and various data collection procedures with chapters on the individual assessments. Part II describes the data analysis procedures and discusses the weighting and variance estimation procedures, the scaling methodology, and the trend and main assessment analyses overall and for the subjects assessed. Chapter 19 presents the basic data from the 1994 assessment. Eleven appendixes contain supplemental information with specific information about aspects of the research methodology and data interpretation. (Contains 269 tables and 29 figures.) (SLD)
