Educational Testing Service
This report draws on data from the National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) to provide a picture of the fourth-grade reading classroom. The picture includes views of teachers and their training, the climate and characteristics of the school environment, and the kinds of instructional and assessment practices that teachers use in reading instruction. In addition to describing the national picture, the report focuses on differences among different types of schools and among racial/ethnic groups of students.
