NCES 2018037 2017 NAEP Mathematics and Reading Assessments: Highlighted Results at Grades 4 and 8 for the Nation, States, and Districts

This online Highlights presents an overview of results from the NAEP 2017 mathematics and reading reports. Highlighted results include key findings for the nation, states/jurisdictions, and 27 districts that participated in the Trial Urban District Assessment (TUDA) in mathematics and reading at grades 4 and 8. Results are presented in terms of average scale scores and as percentages of students performing at the three NAEP achievement levels: Basic, Proficient, and Advanced. Highlighted results are presented for key demographic student groups, and student group score gaps at the national, state, and district level.

The 2017 average reading score for the nation increased at grade 8 compared to 2015; there were no changes for reading at grade 4, or mathematics at either grade. Over the long term, however, the national average mathematics and reading scores were higher for both grades in 2017 compared to the initial assessment years in both subjects (1990 for mathematics and 1992 for reading). The 2017 average scores for states in reading showed no state scoring higher in comparison to 2015 at grade 4 and nine states scoring lower. At grade 8, the 2017 reading results showed 10 states/jurisdictions scoring higher compared to 2015 and one state scoring lower. At grade 4 mathematics, the 2017 results showed that two states/jurisdictions scored higher and 10 states scored lower compared to 2015; at grade 8, two states/jurisdictions scored higher and three states scored lower.

Of the districts that participated in both 2015 and 2017, reading scores were higher in one district at grade 4 and in two districts at grade 8 in comparison to 2015, while most districts showed no significant change in scores. In mathematics, at grade 4, scores increased in four TUDA districts and decreased in four districts. There were no significant changes in eighth-grade mathematics scores for most TUDA districts; one district scored lower in comparison to 2015.

Full results for each subject are available in the 2017 NAEP Mathematics Report Card and the 2017 NAEP Reading Report Card.

NCES 2017087 The Nation’s Report Card: 2016 Arts Assessment at Grade 8

This online report presents the national results of eighth-grade students who participated in the National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) 2016 arts assessment. Results are presented separately for music and visual arts; an overall "arts" scale score is not reported. Although students were evaluated in two arts processes—responding and creating—average scores are presented on a 0–300 scale based on responding questions only. Visual arts results include an average creating task score reported as the average percentage maximum possible score from 0 to 100. Music and visual arts results are also presented as average responding scale scores for students performing at five selected percentiles (10th, 25th, 50th, 75th, and 90th). Along with overall scores, results are reported by race/ethnicity, gender, type of school, and other demographic groups.

In 2016, average responding scores for eighth-graders in both music and visual arts were not significantly different compared to 2008. In music, the average responding score in 2106 was higher for Hispanic students in comparison to 2008, while the average responding score for male students declined. Results for other reported student demographic groups in 2016 showed that the average responding score in music did not change significantly compared to 2008. In visual arts, the average responding score in 2016 did not change significantly for most reported student demographic groups compared to 2008, but it was higher for students eligible for the National School Lunch Program (NSLP).

In both music and visual arts, score gaps between White and Hispanic students in 2016 narrowed in comparison to 2008, and female students scored higher on average than their male peers in both areas. In visual arts, the score gap between students who were eligible for NSLP and students who were not eligible narrowed compared to 2008. In 2016, students from the Northeast scored higher on average than their peers from the South, Midwest, and West in visual arts, and students from the Northeast scored higher on average than their peers from the West in music.

NCES 2017056 Certification Status and Experience of U.S. Public School Teachers: Variations Across Student Subgroups
This report provides a snapshot of the extent to which U.S. public schools students are taught by certified and experienced teachers using two available datasets. The Schools and Staffing Survey (SASS) provides a comprehensive picture, as it includes teachers of K–12 students in all subjects and the National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) provides a picture specific to grades 4 and 8. In addition, NAEP data are directly related to teachers of two key subjects: reading and mathematics. SASS data are available for the 2011–12 school year and NAEP data are available for 2013 and 2015.

NCES 2017161 The National Indian Education Study: 2015
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 primarily on the educational experiences of AI/AN students at grades 4 and 8 based on their responses and the responses of their teachers and school administrators to selected NIES 2015 survey questions. Approximately 8,500 fourth-graders and 8,200 eighth-graders participated in the NIES 2015 student survey. Teachers and school administrators also completed surveys. 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), and Bureau of Indian Education (BIE) schools.

Also included in this report are performance results for AI/AN students in the 14 states with samples large enough to report separate results for AI/AN students in 2015. State-level average scores in NAEP reading and mathematics for AI/AN fourth- and eighth- graders from earlier NAEP assessments in 2005, 2007, 2009, and 2011 are compared to their average reading and mathematics scores in 2015.

NCES 2016162 The Nation’s Report Card: 2015 Science at Grades 4, 8 and 12
This report presents results from the National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) 2015 science assessment. The report includes national and state results on the performance of fourth-, eighth-, and twelfth-grade students. Results are presented in terms of average scores and as percentages of students performing at or above the three NAEP achievement levels: Basic, Proficient, and Advanced. In addition to overall scores, results are reported by race/ethnicity, gender, type of school, and other demographic groups. The 2015 trend in national average science scores showed increases at grades 4 and 8 since 2009 and at grade 8 since 2011. There was no significant change in the average science score for twelfth-grade students. Compared to 2009, scores in 2015 were higher at grades 4 and 8 in all three science content areas (physical science, life science, and Earth and space sciences), while there were no significant changes in content area scores at grade 12. Scores for most student groups at grades 4 and 8 were higher compared to 2009, but were not significantly different at grade 12. At grades 4 and 8, Black and Hispanic students made greater gains than White students, causing the achievement gap to narrow in comparison to 2009. In 2015, the gender score gap remained at grades 8 and 12, and there was no difference between male and female student scores at grade 4. Results for states/jurisdictions in 2015 showed that 18 states/jurisdictions scored higher at grade 4 and 24 states/jurisdictions scored higher at grade 8 compared to 2009; compared to 2011, twelve states/jurisdictions scored higher at grade 8.
