Contents for a New NAEP Report: The Five Largest States
Barton, Paul E.
National Assessment Governing Board
This paper addresses the possible content and organization of a National Assessment Governing Board (NAGB) "Mega Report" based on the most populous five states and the largest metropolitan areas in each of them, namely California, Florida, Illinois, New York, and Texas. It is not a "design" but is much more than an outline, since it discusses the content the report could encompass and why a particular measure should be included, names the sources of information used, and illustrates with data so the reader can "see" what a chart or a table might look like and what either might convey. The author suggests that the report would begin in a traditional way with averages and achievement levels. The five states would be compared on the basis of averages and with the US as a whole. Data would be by gender, race/ethnicity, and school lunch eligibility for each subject and grade. The presentation would allow each state to be compared by each subgroup. (Contains 5 figures, 4 tables, and 1 footnote.)
