Long-Term Trends in Student Reading Performance.
Vanneman, Alan; White, Sheida
NAEP Facts, v3 n1 Jan 1998
Data from the National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) 1996 Long-Term Reading Assessment show that overall student reading performance, as tested at age levels 9, 13, and 17, has increased for both 9- and 13-year-olds since the first assessment in 1971. Scores for 9- and 13-year-olds in most racial/ethnic and gender subgroups reflected the overall increase. Black 17-year-olds were the only members of that age group to achieve an increase, and they did so while black dropout rates were declining. (Contains four notes, one figure, and two tables of data.)
