Student Booklets for the 2006 U.S. History Assessment

The U.S. history student booklets used in the 2006 NAEP assessment comprised 25 blocks. Test developers chose 18 blocks from the previous U.S. history assessment—four blocks at grade 4, seven blocks at grade 8, and seven blocks at grade 12. In addition, they created two new blocks at grades 4 and 12, and three new blocks at grade 8. Two blocks at grade 4, three blocks at grade 8, and two blocks at grade 12 were released from the NAEP 2006 U.S. history assessment and are available to the public via the NAEP Questions Tool. Released blocks of questions are not used in later assessments.

The tables below display the NAEP 2006 U.S. history assessment student booklet configurations for grade 4, grade 8, and grade 12 .
