US Department of Education
This demonstration booklet describes the 2005 assessments. The first three sections explain the purposes and content of the NAEP reading, mathematics, and science assessments and provide sample test questions at each grade level. The fourth section includes the directions and the background questions that all students will be asked to answer. The final part of the booklet, located on the back cover, presents general information about the NAEP program. The sample questions included in this booklet are intended to convey the kinds of questions and question formats that compose the 2005 assessments. The actual questions in the assessment must be safeguarded to maintain the integrity of the assessment and resulting data, but members of the public may request access to secure NAEP questions. Information on how to make such a request is included on the back page of this booklet.
