Student Booklets for the 2007 Reading Assessment

For the 2007 assessment, test developers maintained 7 blocks at grade 4 and 10 blocks at grade 8 from the previous reading assessments. In addition, they created three new blocks at grade 4 and three new blocks at grade 8. Two blocks—one from grade 4 and one from grade 8were released from the NAEP 2007 reading 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 2007 reading assessment student booklet configurations for grade 4 and grade 8.
