NCES 2013469 2011 NAEP-TIMSS Linking Study: Linking Methodologies and Their Evaluations

The 2011 NAEP-TIMSS linking study conducted by the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES) was designed to predict Trends in International Mathematics and Science Study (TIMSS) scores for the U.S. states that participated in 2011 National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) mathematics and science assessment of eighth-grade students. The purpose of conducting the 2011 NAEP-TIMSS linking study was two-fold. The study was conducted to see whether it is possible to predict TIMSS scores for the states that did not participate in the TIMSS assessment. Secondly, the study was conducted to identify a method among various methodologies suggested in the literature for linking two assessments that are somewhat different.

This 2011 NAEP-TIMSS linking methodology paper was prepared to supplement the reading of U.S. States in a Global Context: Results From the 2011 NAEP-TIMSS Linking Study, NCES 2013-460.

NCES 2011457 Measuring the Status and Change of NAEP State Inclusion Rates for Students with Disabilities: Results 2007-2009
This research and development report provided two measures of change in each NAEP participating state’s inclusion rate taking into consideration the prevalence of different types and severities of disabilities and the accommodations the states permits in their own testing programs compared to those allowed by NAEP to students with disabilities in 4th- and 8th- grade reading and mathematics assessments. The study reported results for all 50 states and District of Columbia and used data from the 2005, 2007, and 2009 NAEP assessments of fourth- and eighth-grade reading and mathematics. This two approach methodology—nation-based and jurisdiction-specific— analyzed the inclusion rates from different perspectives. The analysis indicates the status and change in state level inclusion rates. The report presented status of inclusion in 2009 and changes in the rates from 2007 and 2005.

NCES 2010456 Mapping State Proficiency Standards Onto NAEP Scales: 2005-2007
This research and development report compares the standards that states use in reporting 4th- and 8th- grade reading and mathematics proficiency using NAEP as a common metric. The state standards used in reporting 2006-07 results were mapped onto the NAEP scales to compare the standards across the states and in relation to the NAEP achievement levels.

The mapping procedure offers an approximate way to assess the relative rigor of the states’ adequate yearly progress (AYP) standards established under the No Child Left Behind Act of 2001. Once mapped, the NAEP scale equivalent score representing the state's proficiency standards can be compared to indicate the relative rigor of those standards. The term rigor as used here does not imply a judgment about state standards. Rather, it is intended to be descriptive of state-to-state variation in the location of the state standards on a common metric.

NCES 2006029 Comparing Mathematics Content in the National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP), Trends in International Mathematics and Science Study (TIMSS), and Program for International Student Assessment (PISA) 2003 Assessments
This report describes a study that was undertaken to compare the content of three mathematics assessments conducted in 2003: the National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) fourth- and eighth-grade assessments; the Trends in International Mathematics and Science Study (TIMSS), which also assessed mathematics at the fourth- and eighth-grade levels; and the Program for International Student Assessment (PISA), which assessed the mathematical literacy of 15-year-old students. Its aim is to provide information that will be useful for interpreting and comparing the results from the three assessments, based on an in-depth look at the content of the respective frameworks and assessment items. The report draws upon information provided by the developers of the assessments, as well as data obtained from an expert panel convened to compare the frameworks and items from the three assessments on various dimensions.

NCES 2005484 NAEP 1999 Long-Term Trend Technical Analysis Report: Three Decades of Student Performance
This technical report describes the design and implementation of the National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) 1999 Long-Term Trend (LTT) Assessment. The NAEP LTT assessments, first administered in 1969, are intended to measure student progress over time. Consequently, the assessments use questions and procedures that are similar as possible across years and are maintained separately from the main and state NAEP assessments. Information on sample design, scoring, item analyses, IRT scaling, plausible value generation, and scale construction are provided for the reading, mathematics, and science assessments.

NCES 1999452 The NAEP 1996 Technical Report
The 1996 National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) monitored the performance of students in the subject areas of reading, mathematics, science, and writing. About 124,000 students were in the national sample for this assessment. The students were 9-, 13-, or 17 years old or in grades 4, 8, or 12. This technical report provides details on the instrument development, sample design, data collection, and data analysis procedures for the 1996 assessment. The reader is cautioned that results from the 1996 long-term trend assessment in writing are currently under review. Consequently, some of the information contained in this technical report regarding the long-term trend writing assessment should be considered preliminary or partial. This Internet edition of "The NAEP 1996 Technical Report" does incorporate all changes listed on the errata sheet distributed with the print edition.
