The National Center for Education Statistics (NCES) has periodically published reports using results from the National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) to compare the proficiency standards that states set for their students. Since standards vary across states, the results of the various state assessments cannot be used to directly compare students’ progress. However, by placing a state standard onto the NAEP scale, a common metric for all states, a NAEP equivalent score is produced, which can be compared across states. The last mapping study report released by NCES (NCES 2018-159) compared state proficiency standards for school year 2014-15. The 2017 edition of this report highlights the results of mapping state proficiency standards onto the NAEP scales using state assessment results from the 2016–17 school year and the 2017 NAEP assessments for public schools.

As part of the National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP), students, teachers, and school administrators answer survey questionnaires. These questionnaires collect contextual information to provide a better understanding of educational experiences and factors that are related to students’ learning both in and outside of the classroom and to allow for meaningful student group comparisons. As part of the 2015 NAEP assessments, teachers of fourth- and eighth-graders answered survey questions about the content, activities, and skills they emphasized in their classrooms, and twelfth-graders answered questions about their classroom activities or coursework in mathematics, reading, and science. This special report takes an in-depth look at their responses, providing additional information with the 2015 NAEP achievement results.

|NCES 2019048||The National Indian Education Study 2015: A Closer Look
The National Indian Education Study (NIES) is designed to describe the condition of education for fourth- and eighth-grade 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 follow-up report focuses on two major concerns that have been raised throughout the first decade of NIES:
The results presented in this report are focused on the responses of fourth- and eighth-grade AI/AN students to selected survey questions. Approximately 8,500 fourth-graders and 8,200 eighth-graders participated in the NIES 2015 student survey. The survey results displayed are reported as percentages of AI/AN students attending schools that varied in the proportion of AI/AN students within their student population—low AI/AN density public schools (less than 25 percent of students were AI/AN), high AI/AN density public schools (25 percent or more of students were AI/AN), or Bureau of Indian Education (BIE) schools.
|NCES 2019068||The Nation's Report Card: Highlighted Results for the 2018 Technology and Engineering Literacy (TEL) Assessment at Grade 8
This online highlights presents an overview of results from the NAEP 2018 Technology and Engineering Literacy (TEL) report. The report includes national results on the performance of eighth-grade students. Results are presented in terms of average scale scores and as percentages of students performing at or above the three NAEP achievement levels: NAEP Basic, NAEP Proficient, and NAEP Advanced. In addition to overall scores, results are reported by racial/ethnic groups, gender, type of school, and other demographic groups.
In 2018, eighth-grade students scored higher on average in TEL overall compared to 2014, the previous assessment year. Average scores were also higher in all three TEL content areas (Technology and Society, Design and Systems, and Information and Communication Technology) and in all three TEL practices (Understanding Technological Principles, Developing Solutions and Achieving Goals, and Communicating and Collaborating). Compared to 2014, overall TEL scores in 2018 were higher for middle- (50th percentile) and higher- (75th and 90th percentiles) performing eighth-grade students; middle- and higher-performing students also scored higher in all three content areas and all three practices. In 2018, scores for several student groups were higher in TEL overall as well as in each of the content areas and practices in comparison to 2014. Female students scored higher than male students in TEL overall in 2018; female students also scored higher than their male peers in more content areas and practices compared to 2014.
Results are also reported based on students’ responses to a survey questionnaire about their technology and engineering learning experiences in and outside of school. The report includes detailed descriptions of released scenario-based tasks and discrete questions to help illustrate the types of technology and engineering skills measured as part of the NAEP TEL assessment.
Full results are available in the 2018 NAEP Technology and Engineering Literacy (TEL) Report Card.
