|NCES 2010463||National Indian Education Study 2009 - Part II:
The Educational Experiences of American Indian and Alaska Native Students in Grades 4 and 8
The National Indian Education Study (NIES) is a two-part study designed to describe the condition of education for American Indian and Alaska Native (AI/AN) students in the United States. NIES is conducted under the direction of the National Center for Education Statistics on behalf of the U.S. Department of Education’s Office of Indian Education. This report presents the results for Part II of the study focusing on the educational experiences of fourth- and eighth-grade AI/AN students based on survey data collected as part of the 2009 National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP).
In 2009, about 12,000 AI/AN students at grade 4 and 10,000 students at grade 8 provided information about themselves, their families and communities, and their school experiences, such as how often they went on school-sponsored trips to museums or other places to learn about AI/AN people or how often someone at school helped them with their schoolwork. Teachers provided information about educational practices to promote the academic achievement of AI/AN students, and school administrators reported on the school environment and the interaction between the school and the AI/AN community. Survey results were compared for students attending public schools with low proportions of AI/AN students (less than 25 percent of the student body), public schools with high proportions of AI/AN students (25 percent or more of the student body), and Bureau of Indian Education (BIE) schools.
Results showed that students in schools serving higher proportions of AI/AN students were more likely to be exposed to AI/AN culture in and out of school. Involvement of the AI/AN community in the school was also more common in schools with high proportions of AI/AN students. The majority of AI/AN students had teachers who reported relying on state content standards at least to some extent in planning reading/language arts or mathematics lessons. Students in BIE schools were less likely than those in high or low density public schools to have teachers who relied on district content standards and more likely to have teachers who relied on AI/AN content or cultural standards.
|NCES 2010458||The Nation’s Report Card: Reading 2009
This report presents results of the 2009 National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) in reading at grades 4 and 8. Results for students in the nation, the 50 states, the District of Columbia, and Department of Defense schools are reported as average scores and as percentages of students performing at or above three achievement levels: Basic, Proficient, and Advanced. Scores are also reported at selected percentiles, showing changes in the performance of lower-, middle-, and higher-performing students. Results for student demographic groups defined by various background characteristics (e.g., race/ethnicity, gender, and students’ eligibility for free or reduced-price school lunch) are included, as well as sample assessment questions with examples of student responses. The Technical Notes and appendix tables provide information on NAEP samples, school and student participation rates, the exclusion and accommodation of students with disabilities and English language learners, and additional state-level results.
Highlights of the national results show that gains in overall average scores seen in earlier years did not continue at grade 4 but did continue at grade 8. The overall average score for fourth-graders in 2009 was unchanged from the score in 2007 but was higher than the scores in other earlier assessment years from 1992 to 2005. The average score for eighth-graders in 2009 was 1 point higher than in 2007 and 4 points higher than 1992 but was not consistently higher than in all the assessment years in between. There were no significant changes from 2007 to 2009 in the score gaps between White and Black students or between White and Hispanic students at either grade 4 or grade 8. State results for grade 4 show score increases since 2007 in three states and jurisdictions and decreases in four states. At grade 8, scores were higher in 2009 than in 2007 in nine states and jurisdictions, and no states showed a decline.

|NCES 2009455||Achievement Gaps: How Black and White Students in Public Schools Perform in Mathematics and Reading on the National Assessment of Educational Progress
Mathematics and reading scores on the National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) have increased among students attending elementary and secondary schools since the first time the assessment was administered. These score increases have been observed both for Black and White students; statistically significant score differences between the two racial/ethnic groups have also been observed. This statistical analysis report, Achievement Gaps: How Black and White Students in Public Schools Perform in Mathematics and Reading on the National Assessment of Educational Progress, examines achievement gaps between Black and White public-school students at both the national and state levels. The report uses data from two assessment programs—main NAEP and Long-term Trend (LTT) NAEP. While both programs assess reading and mathematics, they are different in three major respects: (1) main NAEP assesses performance of students in 4th- and 8th- grades, while LTT NAEP assesses performance of students ages 9 and 13; (2) main NAEP reports results for both the national and state levels, while LTT NAEP reports results for the national level only; (3) main NAEP was first administered in the 1990s, while LTT NAEP was first administered in the 1970s. The report uses results from all assessment years including the 2007 main NAEP and the 2004 LTT NAEP. All results are for public school students. The percentages of Black and White students in individual states vary by state. Some states’ trends could not be reported because there were not enough Black or White students in the sample to have reportable results.

|NCES 2009321||Characteristics of Public, Private, and Bureau of Indian Education Elementary and Secondary Schools in the United States: Results from the 2007-08 Schools and Staffing Survey
This report presents selected findings from the school data files of the 2007-08 Schools and Staffing Survey (SASS). SASS is a nationally representative sample survey of public, private, and Bureau of Indian Education-funded (BIE) K-12 schools, principals, and teachers in the 50 states and the District of Columbia. The public school sample was designed so that national-, regional-, and state-level elementary, secondary, and combined public school estimates can be made. Public schools include both traditional public and public charter schools. The private school sample was designed so that national-, regional-, and affiliation-level estimates can be produced. BIE schools were sampled with certainty, and thus national estimates for BIE schools can be produced.
