National Indian Education Study 2011: The Educational Experiences of American Indian and Alaska Native Students at Grades 4 and 8. NCES 2012-466
National Center for Education Statistics
Since 2005, the National Indian Education Study (NIES) has provided educators, policymakers, and the public with information about the background and academic performance of fourth- and eighth-grade American Indian and Alaska Native (AI/AN) students in the United States. NIES was administered in 2005, 2007, 2009, and 2011 as part of the National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP), which was expanded to allow for more in-depth reporting on the achievement and experiences of AI/AN students. It fulfills a mandate of Executive Order 13592 issued in 2011 to improve educational outcomes for all AI/AN students. NIES reports present findings that are relevant to research and collaborative provisions of the Executive Order. This report presents results on the performance of fourth- and eighth-grade AI/AN students in the NAEP reading and mathematics assessments, followed by information on their educational experiences based on responses to the NIES student, teacher, and school questionnaires. This represents a change from earlier studies in 2005, 2007, and 2009 when performance and survey results were presented in separate reports. (Contains 36 figures, 28 tables and 7 footnotes.) [The National Indian Education Study (NIES) is directed by NCES and carried out by Educational Testing Service (ETS), Pearson Educational Measurement, American Institutes for Research, Westat, and Fulcrum IT. Additional support in the development of this report was provided by Levine & Associates.]
