Selection of Primary Sampling Units

The samples for the 2001 national main assessment were selected using a complex multistage sample design involving the sampling of students from selected schools within 94 selected geographic areas, called primary sampling units (PSUs), across the United States. The samples were designed to represent fourth-, eighth-, and twelfth-grade students enrolled in public and nonpublic elementary and secondary schools.
