Storage of Assessment Materials

In each assessment cycle, the NAEP materials-processing staff is responsible for the following tasks that are related to student booklets, questionnaires, and rosters for each subject area and sample in the NAEP assessment:

  • printing of student booklets, questionnaires, and tracking forms;
  • packaging and distribution of test materials;
  • processing of student booklets and questionnaires as they are returned from the field;
  • scoring of cognitive items;
  • creating and delivering data files for analysis and reporting;
  • quality control; and
  • storage of test materials following the scoring process.

To better plan and document NAEP activities, beginning with the 2001 assessment, NAEP staff implemented the Capability Maturity Model (CMM), a working document that evolves throughout an assessment cycle. The CMM was introduced to complement the existing Phase Review System (PRS) documentation. The CMM and PRS each include a version control page that is approved by the NAEP team.
