NCES 2010462 National Indian Education Study - Part I: Performance of American Indian and Alaska Native Students at Grades 4 and 8 on NAEP 2009 Reading and Mathematics Assessments
The National Indian Education Study (NIES) is a two-part study designed to describe the condition of education for American Indian and Alaska Native (AI/AN) students in the United States. NIES is conducted under the direction of the National Center for Education Statistics on behalf of the U.S. Department of Education’s Office of Indian Education. This report presents the results for Part I of the study focusing on the performance of AI/AN fourth- and eighth-graders on the 2009 National Assessment of Educational Progress in reading and mathematics.

A national sample of approximately 9,300 AI/AN students at grades 4 and 8 participated in the 2009 reading assessment, and 8,900 participated in the mathematics assessment. Results from this study are compared to those from earlier studies in 2005 and 2007. The results for 12 states with relatively large populations of AI/AN students are presented in addition to the national results.

The average reading score for AI/AN fourth-graders in 2009 was not significantly different from the scores in either 2007 or 2005. The average score for AI/AN students at grade 8 was higher in 2009 than in 2007 but was not significantly different from the score in 2005. Average mathematics scores in 2009 were not significantly different from earlier assessments at either grade. Fourth- and eighth-grade AI/AN students attending BIE schools scored lower on average in reading and mathematics than students attending public schools. Among the 11 states with samples large enough to report results for AI/AN students in both 2009 and 2007, Alaska had a decrease in the reading score at grade 4, and Arizona had an increase in the reading score at grade 8. None of the participating states had a significant change in average mathematics scores since 2007 at grade 4, and South Dakota had an increase at grade 8.

NCES 2010463 National Indian Education Study 2009 - Part II: The Educational Experiences of American Indian and Alaska Native Students in Grades 4 and 8
The National Indian Education Study (NIES) is a two-part study designed to describe the condition of education for American Indian and Alaska Native (AI/AN) students in the United States. NIES is conducted under the direction of the National Center for Education Statistics on behalf of the U.S. Department of Education’s Office of Indian Education. This report presents the results for Part II of the study focusing on the educational experiences of fourth- and eighth-grade AI/AN students based on survey data collected as part of the 2009 National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP).

In 2009, about 12,000 AI/AN students at grade 4 and 10,000 students at grade 8 provided information about themselves, their families and communities, and their school experiences, such as how often they went on school-sponsored trips to museums or other places to learn about AI/AN people or how often someone at school helped them with their schoolwork. Teachers provided information about educational practices to promote the academic achievement of AI/AN students, and school administrators reported on the school environment and the interaction between the school and the AI/AN community. Survey results were compared for students attending public schools with low proportions of AI/AN students (less than 25 percent of the student body), public schools with high proportions of AI/AN students (25 percent or more of the student body), and Bureau of Indian Education (BIE) schools.

Results showed that students in schools serving higher proportions of AI/AN students were more likely to be exposed to AI/AN culture in and out of school. Involvement of the AI/AN community in the school was also more common in schools with high proportions of AI/AN students. The majority of AI/AN students had teachers who reported relying on state content standards at least to some extent in planning reading/language arts or mathematics lessons. Students in BIE schools were less likely than those in high or low density public schools to have teachers who relied on district content standards and more likely to have teachers who relied on AI/AN content or cultural standards.

REL 2009081 Indian Education Policies in Five Northwest Region States
In this comprehensive effort to study Indian education policies, the report categorizes the policies of five Northwest Region states based on 13 key policies identified in the literature and describes the legal methods used to adopt them, such as statutes, regulations, and executive orders. The study found that six of the key policies had been adopted by all five states: adopting academic standards for teaching students about the history and culture of America’s indigenous peoples, involving Native Americans on advisory boards, promoting Native American languages through teacher certification, allowing students to learn their native language as part of their education program, and providing tuition assistance for college-bound Native American students.

NCES 2009307 Late High School Dropouts: Characteristics, Experiences, and Changes Across Cohorts
This report presents information about selected characteristics and experiences of high school sophomores in 2002 who subsequently dropped out of school. It also presents comparative data about late high school dropouts in the years 1982, 1992, and 2004. The findings address only dropping out in late high school and do not cover students who dropped out before the spring of 10th grade. For this reason, the reported rates are lower than those based on the students’ entire high school or earlier school career. Key findings include the following:
  • Forty-eight percent of all late high school dropouts come from families in the lowest quarter (bottom 25 percent) of the socioeconomic status distribution, and 77 percent of late high school dropouts come from the lowest half of the socioeconomic status distribution.
  • Most late high school dropouts (83 percent) listed a school-related (versus a family- or employment-related) reason for leaving. These reasons included missing too many school days, thinking it would be easier to get a GED, getting poor grades, and not liking school.
  • The overall late high school dropout rate was lower in 2004 than in 1982 (7 percent versus 11 percent, respectively) and lower in 1992 than in 1982 (6 percent versus 11 percent), but it showed no statistically significant difference in 2004 compared with 1992.

NCES 2008458 National Indian Education Study – Part II: The Educational Experiences of American Indian and Alaska Native Students in Grades 4 and 8
This report presents information about the educational, home, and community experiences of American Indian and Alaska Native (AI/AN) fourth- and eighth-grade students that was collected during the National Indian Education Study (NIES) of 2007. AI/AN students represent about 1 percent of the student population in the United States. Approximately 10,000 AI/AN students in 1,700 schools at grade 4 and 11,000 AI/AN students from 1,800 schools at grade 8 participated in the study. Surveys were completed by students, their teachers, and their school administrators.The three major areas of findings that are described in this report include characteristics of AI/AN students, characteristics of their teachers and schools, and the integration of native language and culture in their homes and schools. Higher percentages of AI/AN students attended schools located in the South Central and Mountain regions of the country than other regions. Compared to their non-AI/AN peers, higher percentages of AI/AN students reported levels of family resources that indicated low socioeconomic status, such as eligibility for free school lunch.Approximately 7 percent of AI/AN students attended Bureau of Indian Education (BIE) schools, and approximately 89 percent attended public schools. Although the majority of all AI/AN students were taught by non-AI/AN teachers, higher percentages of students in BIE schools than in public schools had AI/AN teachers. Exposure to their native language at home was reported by a higher percentage of AI/AN students who attended schools in which at least 25 percent of the students were AI/AN (“high density” schools) than students attending low density schools. Higher percentages of students attending high density schools than low density schools received instruction on topics related to their native cultures.
