NCES 2006463 National Indian Education Study: Part I: The Performance of American Indian and Alaska Native Fourth- and Eighth-Grade Students on NAEP 2005 Reading and Mathematics Assessments
This report presents the performance results of American Indian/Alaska Native students at grades 4 and 8 on the 2005 National Assessment of Educational Progress in reading and mathematics for the nation, for regions, and for selected states. The national and regional samples include students from both public and nonpublic schools (i.e., Bureau of Indian Affairs [BIA], Department of Defense Education Activity [DoDEA], and private schools). States with relatively large populations of American Indian/Alaska Native students were selected for this study. The states whose results are included in this report (Alaska, Arizona, Montana, New Mexico, North Dakota, Oklahoma, and South Dakota) are the seven states with the largest proportions of American Indians and Alaska Natives as a percentage of the state’s total population. The state samples included only public and BIA schools. Assessment results are described in terms of students’ average scores on a 0–500 scale and in terms of the percentage of students attaining each of three achievement levels: Basic, Proficient, and Advanced. National scores at selected percentiles on the scale (indicating the percentage of students whose scores fell at or below a particular point) are also discussed. This report also provides results for groups of students defined by various background characteristics: race/ethnicity, eligibility for free/reduced-price school lunch, gender, type of school location, and student-reported level of parental education (grade 8 only). The comparisons are generally between the performance results of American Indian/Alaska Native students and those of students who are neither American Indian nor Alaska Native. In the section discussing state results, the comparisons are between the performance results of American Indian/Alaska Native students within each selected state and those of American Indian/Alaska Native students in each of the other selected states, and to the performance results of the national sample of American Indian/Alaska Native students. At the state level, the sample design did not permit comparisons to students who are not American Indian or Alaska Native. The report also includes sample assessment questions and examples of student responses. Appendices include information on national and state samples, school and student participation rates, participation and accommodation of students with disabilities and English language learners, and student group percentages.

NCES 2000005 Indicator of the Month: Racial and Ethnic Distribution of Elementary and Secondary Students
Although variety in student backgrounds and interests can enhance the learning environment, it can also create new or increased challenges for the schools. Between 1976 and 1996, the percent of students enrolled in public elementary and secondary schools who were considered part of a minority group increased by 12 percentage points. This increase was largely due to the growth in the percentage of Hispanic students.
