Science framework for the 1996 and 2000 National Assessment of Educational Progress : NAEP science consensus project( Book )

6 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 487 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Since 1973, the National Assessment of Educational Progress (naep) has gathered information about levels of student proficiency in mathematics. These assessments are reported by naep periodically and present information on the strengths and weaknesses in students' mathematical understanding and their ability to apply that understanding in problem solving situations. This document presents the mathematics framework for the 1996 and 2000 naep assessments. The suggested revisions in the framework for the new naep assessment in mathematics are intended to reflect recent curricular emphases and objectives; to include what various scholars, practitioners, and interested citizens believe should be in the assessment; and to maintain ties to prior assessments to permit the reporting of trends in student achievement. Recommendations for the 1996 and future naep mathematics assessment are presented in eight categories: (1) content strands; (2) mathematical abilities; (3) percentage of items; (4) item families; (5) constructed-response items; (6) special studies; (7) manipulatives; and (8) item bias review. Contains 12 references. (Ask)

The purpose of the 2011 naep (National Assessment of Educational Progress) Writing Framework is to describe how the new naep Writing Assessment is designed to measure students' writing at grades 4, 8, and 12. As the ongoing national indicator of the academic achievement of students in the United States, naep regularly collects information on representative samples of students in those three grades. Given expanding contexts for writing in the 21st century, the 2011 naep Writing Framework is designed to support the assessment of writing as a purposeful act of thinking and expression used to accomplish many different goals. Although naep cannot assess all contexts for student writing, the results of the 2011 naep Writing Assessment will offer new opportunities to understand students' ability to make effective choices in relation to a specified purpose and audience for their writing in an "on-demand" writing situation. In addition, the assessment results will provide important information about the role and impact of new technologies on writing in k-12 education and the extent to which students at grade 12 are prepared to meet postsecondary expectations. On the 2011 naep Writing Assessment, students will have the flexibility to make rhetorical choices that help shape the development and organization of ideas and the language of their responses. Using age- and grade-appropriate writing tasks, the assessment will evaluate writers' ability to achieve three purposes common to writing in school and in the workplace: "to persuade"; "to explain"; and "to convey experience, real or imagined". Because understanding the nature of one's audience is fundamental to successful communication, writing tasks will specify or clearly imply an audience, and writers will be asked to use approaches that effectively address that audience. This report contains the following chapters: (1) Overview; (2) Content of the 2011 naep Writing Assessment; (3) Design of the 2011 naep Writing Assessment; (4) Evaluation of Responses on the 2011 naep Writing Assessment; and (5) Reporting Results of the 2011 naep Writing Assessment. Appendices include: (1) Glossary of Terms; (2) Example Tasks; (3) Preliminary Holistic Scoring Guide for "To Persuade", "To Explain", and "To Convey Experience, Real or Imagined"; (4) 2011 naep Writing Preliminary Achievement Level Descriptions; (5) naep Writing Special Study; (6) 2011 naep Writing Assessment References; and (7) Organizations Contacted to Review Initial 2011 naep Writing Framework Recommendations.

As the ongoing national indicator of what American students know and can do, the National Assessment of Educational Progress (naep) in Reading regularly collects achievement information on representative samples of students in grades 4, 8, and 12. Through "The Nation's Report Card," the naep Reading Assessment reports how well students perform in reading various texts and responding to those texts by answering multiple-choice and constructed-response questions. The information naep provides about student achievement helps the public, educators, and policymakers understand strengths and weaknesses in student performance and make informed decisions about education. The 2011 naep Reading Assessment will measure national, regional, state, and sub-group achievement in reading but is not designed to report individual student or school performance. The assessment will measure students' reading comprehension and their ability to apply vocabulary knowledge to assist them in comprehending what they read. The reading assessment will use the same framework used in 2009. This document, the "Reading Framework for the 2011 National Assessment of Educational Progress", presents the conceptual base for, and discusses the content of, the assessment. It is intended for a broad audience. This report contains three chapters: (1) Overview; (2) Content and Design of naep in Reading; and (3) Reporting Results. Appendices include: (1) Glossary of Terms; (2) naep Reading Achievement Level Definitions; and (3) Special Studies: naep Reading Framework. A bibliography is included. (Contains 6 footnotes and 12 exhibits.)[To view the 2009 report, see ed502953.]

This document provides the framework to guide the development of assessment instruments for the 1994 National Assessment of Educational Progress (naep) in geography. This framework is designed to assess the outcomes of students' education in geography in grades 4, 8, and 12 as part of the naep. The document draws from the five themes of geography, often used to organize instruction. It melds key physical science and social science aspects of geography into a cohesive and topical whole. It focuses on what geography students should know to be competent and productive 21st century citizens, and uses 3 content areas for assessing the outcomes of geography education: (1) space and place; (2) environment and society, and (3) spatial dynamics and connections. Space and place, which encompasses geography's basic fundamentals, should be assessed by 40 percent of the questions at grades 4, 8, and 12. The other content areas, which are more sophisticated, should be assessed by 30 percent of the questions at each of the 3 grade levels. This framework and its 3 content outcomes serve to clarify specifics of subject matter that should be measured in the 1994 naep geography assessment. This document contains four chapters. The first discusses the nature of geography education and the geography curriculum. The second provides an overview of the framework for the 1994 naep geography assessment. The third lists specifics of the framework content in three areas. The fourth chapter discusses characteristics of the assessment. (Dk)
