Title:  NAEP 1996 State Mathematics Assessment Data (Grades 4 and 8, Reporting Sample): Restricted-Use Data Files
Description: This CD-ROM contains data and documentation files for the 1996 state assessment in mathematics at grades 4 and 8 (reporting sample only) for use in the analysis of NAEP data by secondary researchers. The “reporting sample” includes all schools, but only those students and data that were used in the computation of results reported in the major 1996 reports. Included on the CD-ROM is a User’s Guide provided in electronic portable document format (PDF). This guide contains information on the contents and use of the data files on this disk as well as the assessment design and its implications for analysis. NAEP datasets from 2002 onward require a Tool Kit with the updated NAEPEX. Your organization must apply for and be granted a restricted-use data license in order to obtain these data.
