In 2001, NAEP assessed 60,000 students in geography and U.S. history in grades four, eight, and twelve. Additionally, there were 2,489 fourth- and eighth-grade teacher questionnaires and 1,043 school questionnaires for the three grades. Each of the four types of fourth-grade teacher questionnaires had identical Sections 1 and 2. Section 3 was different in each of the forms; it contained new, field test items. In addition, there were four form types for each of the three grades of school questionnaires. The make-up of these twelve forms was similar to the fourth-grade teacher questionnaires (Sections 1 and 2 previously administered material and Section 3 new field test items). Because eighth-grade teachers usually teach a single subject rather than multiple subjects, there were separate teacher questionnaires for geography/U.S. history and language arts. All field test items were placed in the eighth-grade language arts teacher questionnaire. Additionally, there were 16,462 students with disabilities/limited-English-proficient (SD/LEP) questionnaires processed. There were 2,468 tracking forms or rosters for the questionnaires.
