2002 Processing Schedule

2002 Student Participation Counts

In the Spring of 2002, the National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) assessed students in reading and writing at grades four and eight to be representative of both the nation and participating states and at grade twelve to be representative of the nation only.

The NAEP materials processing center received and processed a total of approximately 669,300 assessed student booklets for the national main and state samples. There were 46 states and six jurisdictions that participated in NAEP.

In addition to the student documents processed, there were 151,600 questionnaires, 36,500 administration schedules, and 13,400 rosters processed. Questionnaire types included teacher questionnaires (TQ, n=36,000), school policy and characteristics questionnaires (SQ, n=10,700), and SD/LEP questionnaires (students with disabilities or limited English proficiency, n=104,900). In 2002, the school questionnaires (one for each grade) and the language arts teacher questionnaires (one for each grade) were offered in traditional paper form and online at www.naep.org, www.naepq.com, www.naepg.org, and www.naepg.com. These websites are password protected and are only supported during the data collection period. Approximately 2,500 questionnaires were completed online. Of those, about half were also submitted via paper.
