The Nation's Report Card: State Writing 2002 Reports for Grade 8.
National Center for Education Statistics (ED), Washington, DC.
This document compiles the one-page state "snapshot reports" for the 2002 National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) writing assessment at grade 8. In 2002, 44 states and 6 jurisdictions at grade 8 participated in the writing assessment. Three states at grade 8 did not meet minimum school participation guidelines for reporting their results in 2002. Each participating jurisdiction receives its own customized state report. Within each state report the overall scale score and achievement level results are provided, in addition to student subgroup results. The 2002 NAEP program included state-level assessments in reading and writing at grades 4 and 8, and national-level assessments in reading and writing at grades 4, 8, and 12. The state reports and their companion, "The Nation's Report Card: Writing Highlights 2002," provide a look at the main results of the NAEP 2002 writing assessment. (RS)
