Title:  The Nation's Report Card: Mathematics 2000
Description: This report presents the results of the 2000 assessment in mathematics from the National Assessment of Educational Progress for the nation and for the participating states and jurisdictions. Comparisons are made to performance in previous national assessments in 1990, 1992 and 1996 at grades 4, 8, and 12. Comparison data are given both within and across participating jurisdictions for 1992, 1996, and 2000 at grade 4, and for 1990, 1992, 1996, and 2000 at grade 8. Student performance is reported in terms of average scale scores on the NAEP mathematics scale and by the percentages of students who attained the achievement levels set by the National Assessment Governing Board (NAGB). In addition, the report presents percentile distributions and demographic subgroup results, including results by gender, race/ethnicity, region of the country, type of school location, school type, and student eligibility for the free/reduced price lunch program. One chapter focuses on a second set of results that includes the performance of special-needs students who were permitted accommodations in the test administration, both in the national and state samples. The report presents information on contexts for learning mathematics, including teacher characteristics, classroom practices, use of computers/calculators, student attitudes toward mathematics, and out-of-classroom activities. The report also includes sample test questions and examples of student responses.
