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.

Reading framework for the 2011 National Assessment of Educational Progress by United States( Book )

Since 1973, the National Assessment of Educational Progress (naep) has gathered information about student achievement in mathematics. Results of these periodic assessments, produced in print and web-based formats, provide valuable information to a wide variety of audiences. The naep Assessment in mathematics has two components that differ in purpose. One assessment measures long-term trends in achievement among 9-, 13-, and 17-year-old students by using the same basic design each time. The main naep Assessment is based on a framework (such as this one) that can be updated periodically. The "2011 Mathematics Framework" only reflects changes in grade 12 from 2005; mathematics content objectives for grades 4 and 8 have not changed. Therefore, main naep trend lines from the early 1990s can continue at fourth and eighth grades for the 2011 assessment. In broad terms, this framework attempts to answer the question: What mathematics skills should be assessed on naep at grades 4, 8, and 12? Of critical importance is the fact that this document does not attempt to answer the question: What (or how) mathematics should be taught? The framework was developed with the understanding that some concepts, skills, and activities in school mathematics are not suitable to be assessed on naep, although they may well be important components of a school curriculum. This framework describes a design for the main naep assessments at the national, state, and district levels, but it is not the framework for the long-term trend naep Assessment. This report contains five chapters: (1) Overview; (2) Framework for the Assessment; (3) Mathematical Complexity of Items; (4) Item Formats; and (5) Design of Test and Items. Naep Mathematics Achievement Level Descriptions is appended. A bibliography is included. (Contains 12 exhibits.) [The following people were the primary authors of the introductions to the content areas: Roger Howe; Richard Scheaffer, and Mary Lindquist.]

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)

3 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 401 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This booklet contains the Writing Framework for the 1998 National Assessment of Educational Progress (naep). The Framework describes the basis for the 1998 Writing Assessment, the types of writing assessed, and the methods for scoring student responses. This Framework was developed during 1989-90 in preparation for the 1992 naep Writing Assessment. For the 1998 Assessment, the Framework was augmented by a set of Writing Assessment and Exercise specifications, developed during 1995-96. After an overview and introduction, chapters in the first part of the booklet are (1) Developing the 1998 naep Writing Framework; (2) Designing the 1998 naep Writing Assessment; and (3) Constructing and Scoring the Assessment. An appendix lists members of the Writing Framework panel. After an introduction and overview of the 1998 naep Writing Assessment, sections of the second part of the booklet present assessment specifications (specifications for content, technical concerns, review, administration, and scoring and reporting) and task specifications (format scoring rubric, reader training, and classroom writing component). Appendixes provide preliminary achievement level descriptions for grades 4, 8, and 12; a suggested process for rubric construction and general characteristics of writing by mode; and lists of committee members and project staff.

Reading framework for the National Assessment of Educational Progress, 1992-2000 : NAEP reading consensus project by Washington, Dc Council of Chief State School Officers( Book )

3 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 377 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This booklet presents the Reading Framework for the 1992, 1994, 1998, and 2000 National Assessments of Educational Progress (naep), adopted by the National Assessment Governing Board (nagb). The Framework contains the rationale for the aspects of reading assessed and criteria for development of the assessment. Developed through a national consensus process as part of an effort to move assessment forward, the framework presented in the booklet is more consistent with contemporary knowledge about reading and more relevant to the needs of education decisionmakers than earlier assessments have been. After an overview and introduction, chapters of the booklet are: (1) development of the Reading Framework (which discusses Steering Committee guidelines, the nature of assessment, reading literacy, assessment and instruction, new methodologies, and the basis of the Framework); (2) design of the Reading Framework (which discusses a goal for reading literacy education; constructing, extending, and examining meaning; and constructing the assessment); and (3) special Studies and Background Information (which discusses the oral reading and response study, the portfolio study, the metacognition study, and information for education policymakers). Contains 10 references; appendixes present reading achievement level descriptions, lists of Steering and Planning Committee members, and sample items. (Rs)
