Participation Results for the 2000 State Assessment

School and student participation results in the 2000 assessment are reported here. The assessment collected data from student samples in which assessment accommodations for students with disabilities (SD) or limited-English-proficient (LEP) students were not permitted (R2) and samples of students for whom accommodations were permitted (R3). If an SD/LEP student did not meet the criteria for inclusion, he or she did not participate; all other students were asked to participate in the assessment under standard conditions.

Student Participation Results

In every NAEP assessment, the student sample falls into the following groups:

  • withdrawn students,

  • excluded students with disabilities,

  • excluded limited-English-proficient students,

  • students assessed in the initial session,

  • students assessed in makeup sessions, and

  • students absent from both sessions (not excluded but not assessed).

Withdrawn students are those students who have left the school before the assessment data have been collected. Excluded students are those who cannot be assessed even with an accommodation because they are disabled or have limited English proficiency. Assessed students are either assessed in the initial session, or if they were absent for that session, perhaps in the makeup session. The last category in the list includes students who were not excluded (i.e., "were to be assessed"), but were not assessed, either due to absence (from both sessions) or a refusal to participate. Assessed students are also classified as assessed without an accommodation or assessed with an accommodation. The latter group can be divided into SD students assessed with an accommodation, LEP students assessed with an accommodation, or students who are both SD and LEP and accommodated (students neither SD nor LEP can only be assessed without an accommodation). Note that some SD and LEP students are assessed without accommodations.
