Processing Schedules and Overall Counts for 2000


2000 Processing Schedule

2000 Student Participation and Session Information

In 2000, NAEP staff received and processed a total of approximately 503,000 assessed student booklets for the national main and state samples.

Nearly 112,000 students were assessed in the national main assessment. An additional 391,000 students were assessed in the state component, which included representative samples from 41 states and 6 U.S. jurisdictions. The state assessment included grades 4 and 8 in both mathematics and science.

Broken down another way, 247,000 fourth-grade students, 226,000 eighth-grade students, and 30,000 twelfth-grade students were assessed for both the national main and state assessments.

Additionally, 138,767 questionnaires and 12,313 rosters were processed. There were three types of questionnaires for each subject area and grade: teacher questionnaires (46,096, grades 4 and 8 only), school questionnaires (82,031), and students with disabilities or limited-English-proficient (SD/LEP) student questionnaires (82,031). In 2000, a shorter version of the teacher questionnaire was administered in the state assessment, while the standard length version was administered in the national main assessment.
