Beginning in 2014, the data collection staff used the electronic preassessment visit system to handle the administration of questionnaires, including the functions previously completed with printed administration schedules, worksheets, and rosters. In addition, beginning in 2015, the data collection from
students with disabilities (SD) and
English learners (EL) worksheets was built into the preassessment visit system.
In 2017, NAEP collected the data from school and teacher questionnaires via an online questionnaire system; approximately 115,000 school and teacher questionnaires in total were entered into this system by school staff.
Scannable paper questionnaires were also produced and provided to the data collection staff. Approximately 9,000 completed school and teacher scannable questionnaires were returned to the materials distribution staff.
