The National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) is the only nationally representative and continuing assessment of what students in the United States know and can do in various academic subjects. The 1996 NAEP in mathematics assessed the current level of mathematical achievement as a mechanism for informing education reform. In 1996, 44 states, the District of Columbia, Guam, and the Department of Defense schools took part in the NAEP state mathematics assessment program. The NAEP 1996 state mathematics assessment was at grade 4 and grade 8, although grades 4, 8, and 12 were assessed at the national level. The 1996 state mathematics assessment covered the five content strands: (1) Number Sense, Properties, and Operations; (2) Measurement; (3) Geometry and Spatial Sense; (4) Data Analysis, Statistics, and Probability; and (5) Algebra and Functions. In Oregon, 2,233 students in 95 public schools were assessed at the fourthgrade level and 2,323 students in 98 public schools were assessed at the eighthgrade level. This report describes the mathematics proficiency of Oregon fourth and eighthgrade students, compares their overall performance to students in the West region of the United States and the entire United States (using data from the NAEP national assessment), presents the average proficiency for the five content strands, and summarizes the performance of subpopulations (gender, race/ethnicity, parents' educational level, Title I participation, and free/reduced lunch program eligibility). To provide a context for the assessment data, participating students, their mathematics teachers, and principals completed questionnaires which focused on: school characteristics (attendance); instructional content (curriculum coverage, standards; amount of homework); delivery of mathematics instruction and its characteristics; use of technology in mathematics instruction; students' own views about mathematics; and conditions facilitating mathematics learning (hours of television watched, parental support, home influences). On the NAEP fields of mathematics scales that range from 0 to 500, the average mathematics scale score for fourth grade students in Oregon was 223 compared to 222 throughout the United States and the average mathematics scale score for eighth grade students in Oregon was 276 compared to 271 throughout the United States. The average mathematics scale score of fourth and eighth grade males did not differ significantly from that of females in either Oregon or the nation. At the fourth and eighth grades, White students in Oregon had an average mathematics scale score that was higher than that of Hispanic and American Indian students but was not significantly different from that of Asian/Pacific Islander students.

To provide a context for the assessment data, participating students, their mathematics teachers, and principals completed questionnaires which focused on: school characteristics (attendance); instructional content (curriculum coverage, standards, amount of homework); delivery of mathematics instruction and its characteristics; use of technology in mathematics instruction; students' own views about mathematics; and conditions facilitating mathematics learning (hours of television watched, parental support, home influences). On the NAEP fields of mathematics scales that range from 0 to 500, the average mathematics scale score for fourth grade students in Iowa was 229 compared to 222 throughout the United States and the average mathematics scale score for eighth grade students in Iowa was 284 compared to 271 throughout the United States. The average mathematics scale score of fourth and eighth grade males did not differ significantly from that of females in either Iowa or the nation. At the fourth and eighth grades, White students in Iowa had an average mathematics scale score that was higher than that of Black and Hispanic students.

The National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) is the only nationally representative and continuing assessment of what students in the United States know and can do in various academic subjects. The 1996 NAEP in mathematics assessed the current level of mathematical achievement as a mechanism for informing education reform. In 1996, 44 states, the District of Columbia, Guam, and the Department of Defense schools took part in the NAEP state mathematics assessment program. The NAEP 1996 state mathematics assessment was at grades 4 and 8, although grades 4, 8, and 12 were assessed at the national level. The 1996 state mathematics assessment covered the five content strands: (1) Number Sense, Properties, and Operations; (2) Measurement; (3) Geometry and Spatial Sense; (4) Data Analysis, Statistics, and Probability; and (5) Algebra and Functions. In Alaska, 2,304 students in 113 public schools were assessed at the fourthgrade level and 1,462 students in 53 public schools were assessed at the eighthgrade level. This report describes the mathematics proficiency of Alaska fourth and eighthgrade students, compares their overall performance to students in the West region of the United States and the entire United States (using data from the NAEP national assessment), presents the average proficiency for the five content strands, and summarizes the performance of subpopulations (gender, race/ethnicity, parents' educational level, Title I participation, and free/reduced lunch program eligibility). To provide a context for the assessment data, participating students, their mathematics teachers, and principals completed questionnaires which focused on: school characteristics (attendance); instructional content (curriculum coverage, standards, amount of homework); delivery of mathematics instruction and its characteristics; use of technology in mathematics instruction; students' own views about mathematics; and conditions facilitating mathematics learning (hours of television watched, parental support, home influences). On the NAEP fields of mathematics scales that range from 0 to 500, the average mathematics scale score for fourth grade students in Alaska was 224 compared to 222 throughout the United States, and the average mathematics scale score for eighth grade students in Alaska was 278 compared to 271 throughout the United States.

The NAEP 1996 state mathematics assessment was at grade 4 and grade 8, although grades 4, 8, and 12 were assessed at the national level. The 1996 state mathematics assessment covered the five content strands: (1) Number Sense, Properties, and Operations; (2) Measurement; (3) Geometry and Spatial Sense; (4) Data Analysis, Statistics, and Probability; and (5) Algebra and Functions. In Minnesota, 2,425 students in 99 public schools and 277 students in 15 nonpublic schools were assessed at the fourthgrade level and 2,425 students in 96 public schools and 250 students in 15 nonpublic schools were assessed at the eighthgrade level. This report describes the mathematics proficiency of Minnesota fourth and eighthgrade students, compares their overall performance to students in the Central region of the United States and the entire United States (using data from the NAEP national assessment), presents the average proficiency for the five content strands, and summarizes the performance of subpopulations (gender, race/ethnicity, parents' educational level, Title I participation, and free/reduced lunch program eligibility). Results are also presented for nonpublic school students at grades 4 and 8 for the 1996 state mathematics assessment. To provide a context for the assessment data, participating students, their mathematics teachers, and principals completed questionnaires which focused on: school characteristics (attendance); instructional content (curriculum coverage, standards, amount of homework); delivery of mathematics instruction and its characteristics; use of technology in mathematics instruction; students' own views about mathematics; and conditions facilitating mathematics learning (hours of television watched, parental support, home influences). On the NAEP fields of mathematics scales that range from 0 to 500, the average mathematics scale score for fourth grade students in Minnesota was 232 compared to 222 throughout the United States and the average mathematics scale score for eighth grade students in Minnesota was 284 compared to 271 throughout the United States. The average mathematics scale score of fourth and eighth grade males did not differ significantly from that of females in either Minnesota or the nation. At the fourth grade, White students in Minnesota had an average mathematics scale score that was higher than that of students in any other racial/ethnic group. At the eighth grade, White students in Minnesota had an average mathematics scale score that was higher than that of Black and Hispanic students but was not significantly different from that of Asian/Pacific Islander students.
