Title:  The Nation's Report Card: State Science 2000 Reports
Description: This series of reports provides an overview for each state/jurisdiction on the results of the NAEP 2000 Science assessment as well as the state's previous science assessments. Each participating jurisdiction receives its own customized State Report within the same format. This overview provides basic information on NAEP including the overall results for public schools in tabular form and comparisons of the state with that of other participating states and jurisdictions in graphic form for grades 4 and 8. It describes the assessment, the sample of students assessed, the metrics for reporting student performance, and how the differences in student performance are reported. In addition, each report contains results for a second set of results from the 2000 science assessment that includes the performance of special-needs students who were permitted accommodations in the test administration.
