Mathematics results from 1990 and 1992 assessments are also provided for the nation and for states that participated in either or both of the assessments. The student, teacher, and school data from these assessments help describe some of the current practices and emphases in education and provide an educational context for understanding information about a student's proficiency.

The results include average scale scores and percentages for each response alternative, scale score percentiles, achievement level percentages, and percentages for cognitive questions. Results are enumerated for important demographic groups, such as student gender, race/ethnicity, and parental education level.
