NAEP 1996 Mathematics Cross-State Data Compendium for the Grade 4 and Grade 8 Assessment. Findings from the State Assessment in Mathematics of the National Assessment of Educational Progress.
Shaughnessy, Catherine A.; Nelson, Jennifer E.; Norris, Norma A.
This technical report from the National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) 1996 State Assessment Program in Mathematics presents fourth- and eighth-grade cross-state results of the NAEP 1996 State Assessment in mathematics. However, no interpretations of the data are included. This report does include the revised results from comparable assessments conducted in 1990 and 1992. These revisions were required due to errors in the procedures that were originally used to develop the NAEP mathematics scale and achievement levels. Eight chapters contain information on results for the nation in the context of content strands and type of school, scale information by population subgroups, background information collected from students and teachers via interviews and questionnaires, and classroom practices related to mathematics instruction.
