— Not available. The variable was not used at the indicated grade.
† Not applicable.
NOTE: "X" indicates that the group-defining variable was available and used in the population-structure model at the indicated grade. "NAEP ID" is a unique, eight-character identification number assigned to identify each group-defining variable corresponding to a particular background or subject area question within the entire pool of such variables. The first four characters identify the origin of the variable: BACK (student background information from administration and sampling sources), STUD (student questionnaire). The second four digits represent the sequential position within each origin group. "ID" is a NAEP database identification number assigned to the group-defining variables commonly used in NAEP. "TCS ID" is the NAEP test creation system (TCS) identification that is used in the questionnaires to label each background question. Variables that come from sources other than background questionnaires have no such identification. All combinations of the group-defining variables listed in this table were used to create interactions.
