Estimation skills, mathematics-in-context, and advanced skills in mathematics : results from three studies of the national assessment of educational progress, 1996 mathematics assessment( Book )

3 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 385 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report presents information from three special studies conducted as part of the National Assessment of Educational Progress (naep) 1996 mathematics assessment. It is intended primarily for mathematics educators and others concerned with mathematics education, such as curriculum specialists, teachers, and university faculty in schools of education. The three studies reported here were designed to provide greater detail on how students perform on particular types of mathematics questions. Studies include the Estimation Study, the Study of Mathematics-in-Context, and the Study of Students Taking Advanced Courses in Mathematics. The first study was designed to explore students' skills in estimation and was implemented at three grade levels. It concludes that although there has been significant improvement in mathematics performance overall since 1990 at all grade levels, the trend for student performance in estimation over the six years since the inception of the Estimation Study of 1990 is less clear. The second study was designed to assess problem-solving abilities within contexts that allow students to make connections across mathematics content areas. The Advanced study was administered at grades 8 and 12 and was designed to provide students who were taking or had taken advanced courses in mathematics an opportunity to demonstrate their full mathematical proficiency.

NAEP 1996 science cross-state data compendium for the grade 8 assessment : findings from the National Assessment of Educational Progress for the state science assessment( Book )

2 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 380 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This compendium presents eighth grade cross-state results of the National Assessment of Educational Progress (naep) 1996 state assessment in science along with national and regional results from the naep 1996 National Assessment in science without interpretations of the data. Tables of cross-state information for the variables discussed in the naep 1996 Science Report Card for the Nation and States and the naep 1996 Science State Report are included. This document is intended as a companion to the Science Report Card and the Science State Report. The results for the nation and regions of the country are based on the nationally and regionally representative samples of public and nonpublic school students assessed as part of the national naep program. Chapter 1 presents the results for the nation, the four regions, and the participating jurisdictions in the context of the overall average science scale scores and scale scores for the fields of science and the type of school. Chapter 2 presents scale score information for selected population subgroups. Chapters 3 through 7 contain results broken down by background information collected from students, teachers, and school characteristics. (Ddr)
Exploring new methods for collecting students' school-based writing : NAEP's 1990 portfolio study by Claudia A Gentile( Book )

3 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 372 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report describes the procedures used to collect, describe, and evaluate school-based writing in a special pilot portfolio study conducted by the National Assessment of Educational Progress (naep) to explore portfolios as an alternative method of assessing students' writing achievement. The report has three main purposes: (1) to explore procedures for collecting classroom-based writing from students around the country; (2) to develop methods for describing and classifying the variety of writing submitted; and (3) to create general scoring guides that could be applied across papers written in response to a variety of prompts or activities. The report is divided into four chapters. Following an introduction, the first chapter describes the writing received from the students and information from participating teachers about the activities that generated the writing. Chapter 2 explains the procedures used to evaluate the writing students submitted as well as the results of this evaluation. Chapter 3 compares the results of the naep 1990 writing assessment with the analysis of participants' school-based writing samples and summarizes the lessons learned from the portfolio study. Chapter 4 contains a set of sample papers, further illustrating how the evaluative guides can be applied and presenting a sense of the range and depth of writing received from participating students. Appendixes contain information on demographic characteristics and on students' performance by process strategies. (Sr)

The U.S. history report card : the achievement of fourth-, eighth-, and twelfth-grade students in 1988 and trends from 1986 to 1988 in the factual knowledge of high-school juniors by David C Hammack( Book )

6 editions published in 1990 in English and held by 332 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Each of the three parts of this report provides a somewhat different perspective on U.S. students' knowledge and understanding of U.S. history. Part 1 summarizes the assessment performance of approximatley 16,0000 fourth-, eighth-, and twelfth-grade students based on the National Assessment of Educational Progress U.S. history proficiency scale. Chapter 1 uses this measure to summarize the levels of proficiency displayed by students in the 1988 assessment, offering an overview and examples of their knowledge and understanding. Chapter 2 compares U.S. history proficiency across the grades and across subpopulations defined by race/ethnicity, gender, region, and other characteristics. Part 2 of the report takes a closer look at the assessment results. The chapters in this section provide information not only on the results of the assessment of students in grades 4,8, and 12, but also on trends in the performance of approximately 2,300 eleventh-grade students, based on a special study conducted in 1986 and 1988. Chapter 3 explores students' knowledge of historical periods, chronology, documents, and persons, while chapter 4 summarizes their familiarity with the historical contexts of political and economic life as well as of cultural, social, and family life. Part 3 describes the amount and nature of social studies and U.S. history instruction reported by students who participated in the 1988 assessment and in the special trend assessment. Chapter 5 summarizes the extent of students' instruction in these subjects, and chapter 6 reports on various aspects of this instruction--particularly the topics studied and the prevalence of various instructional activities. Many tables of statistical data are included. (Jb)
