NAEP 1998 Reading State Report for Department of Defense Domestic Dependent Elementary and Secondary Schools.
Ballator, Nada; Jerry, Laura
The 1998 NAEP (National Assessment of Educational Progress) state level reading assessment measured fourth- and eighth-grade students' reading proficiency in situations that involved reading for three purposes: reading for literary experience, reading to gain information, and reading to perform a task (grade 8 only). This report describes the reading proficiency of Department of Defense Domestic Dependent Elementary and Secondary Schools fourth- and eighth-grade students and compares their overall performance to students in the nation (using data from the NAEP national assessments). The distribution of reading results and reading achievement level results are provided for subpopulations of students (gender, race/ethnicity, students' reports of parents' highest educational level, free/reduced-price lunch program eligibility, and type of location). The average reading proficiency of fourth-grade students in Department of Defense Domestic Dependent Elementary and Secondary Schools on the NAEP reading scale was 220 compared to 215 nationwide; and 269 compared to 261 nationwide for eighth-grade public school students.
