NCES 2012466 The National Indian Education Study: 2011
The National Indian Education Study (NIES) is 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. The results presented in this report focus on the performance of AI/AN fourth- and eighth-graders on the 2011 National Assessment of Educational Progress in reading and mathematics and on the educational experiences of AI/AN students based on NIES survey data.

Nationally representative samples of approximately 9,600 AI/AN students at grades 4 and 8 participated in the 2011 reading assessment and in the mathematics assessment. Students’ performance in 2011 is compared to earlier assessments in 2005, 2007, and 2009. Average reading and mathematics scores for AI/AN fourth- and eighth-graders in 2011 were not significantly different from the scores in either 2009 or 2005. At both grades 4 and 8, AI/AN students attending BIE schools scored lower on average in reading and mathematics than students attending public schools. Among the 12 states with samples large enough to report results for AI/AN students in both 2009 and 2011, average mathematics scores were lower in 2011 for fourth-graders in Montana and for eighth-graders in Minnesota and Utah. None of the participating states had a significant change in average reading scores from 2009 to 2011 at grade 4 or grade 8.

About 10,200 AI/AN students at grade 4 and 10,300 students at grade 8 participated in the 2011 NIES survey. Surveys were also completed by students’ teachers and school administrations. Results showed how the educational experiences of AI/AN students differed based on the type of school they attended and the proportion of AI/AN students in the school. For example, AI/AN students in BIE schools were more likely to report having some or a lot of knowledge about their AI/AN history, have teachers who reported learning about AI/AN students from living and working in the AI/AN community, and attend schools where members of the AI/AN community visit the school to discuss education issues.

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.
