Title:  The Nation's Report Card: Fourth-Grade Reading 2000
Description: This report presents results of the NAEP 2000 reading assessment at grade 4 and makes comparisons to fourth-grade reading performance on previous NAEP assessments. Student performance is described by average scale scores on the NAEP reading composite scale and in terms of the percentages of students who attained the achievement levels sets by the National Assessment Governing Board (NAGB). Performance results are also presented by percentile distribution as well as by demographic subgroups, including race/ethnicity, gender, region of the country, type of location, type of school, and eligibility for the free/reduced-price lunch program. One chapter of the report focuses on student-reported background information about school and home experiences and their relation to reading performance. The final chapter focuses on a second set of results from the 2000 reading assessment that includes the performance of special-needs students who were permitted accommodations in the test administration. In addition, the report includes the full text of a reading passage, sample test questions, and examples of student responses.
