NCES 200321 U.S. 2001 U.S. PIRLS Nonresponse Bias Analysis
The Progress in International Reading Literacy Study (PIRLS) of 2001 is a large international comparative study of the reading literacy of young students. The student population for the U.S. 2001 PIRLS was the set of all fourth-graders in the United States, corresponding to the grade in which the highest proportion of nine-year-olds are enrolled. Because the response rate from the original sample was below 85 percent, NCES investigated the potential magnitude of nonresponse bias at the school level. The methodology and results of this investigation are presented in this report.

NCES 200320 Imputation Methodology for the National Postsecondary Student Aid Study: 2004
The working paper offers several improvements for the imputation of variable values. Using data from the 1999-2000 National Postsecondary Student Aid Study (NPSAS), the paper describes the procedures and results for resolving discrepancies in variable values obtained from several data sources; imputing missing values on variables with low levels of missing data; imputing values for derived variables of great policy importance; and variance estimates for imputed variable values. Identified improvements will be applied to the NPSAS:2004 study.

In March 2003, NCES asked Human Resources Research Organization (HumRRO) to participate in a special study of 2002 reading assessment results for Delaware. The study was based on seven technical factors aimed at exploring the data for potential problems: the sampling of Delaware students; the case weights of the Delaware data; the design for assigning test booklets; the scoring of Delaware data; scaling and equating for Delaware; coding data in Delaware; and a breach in test security in Delaware.

NCES 200314 Feasibility Studies of Two-Stage Testing in Large-Scale Educational Assessment: Implications for NAEP
This report discusses the rationale for enhancing the current NAEP design by adding a capacity for adaptive testing. Items are tailored to the achievement level of the student in adaptive testing. The authors conclude that implementation of adaptive testing procedures, two-stage testing in particular, has the potential to increase the usability and validity of NAEP results. Adaptive testing would permit adequately reliable scores to be reported to individual students and their parents, increasing their personal stake in performing well. Improvement in data quality would also speed data processing and permit delivery of assessment results in a timely manner.
