Title: Mapping State Proficiency Standards Onto the NAEP Scales: Results From the 2015 NAEP Reading and Mathematics Assessments
Description: During the past 13 years, the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES) has published reports in which the National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) is used for comparing the proficiency standards that students have to meet in each state. This sixth report highlights results of mapping state proficiency standards onto the NAEP scales using state assessment results for public schools from the 201415 school year and the 2015 NAEP assessments. The report focuses on the reading and mathematics standards that states set for grades 4 and 8 for federal reporting under the 2001 and 2015 reauthorizations of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965. By placing standards onto the NAEP scales, a common metric to all states, it is possible to compare the standards that students are expected to meet in each state.
