Title: NAEP 1992 National and Long-Term Trend Assessments (Student, Teacher, and School Data): Restricted-Use Data Files
Description: This CD-ROM contains data and documentation files for the 1992 national main assessments in reading, mathematics, and writing, in addition to the long-term trend assessments, and three special studies. National samples were drawn of students ages 9, 13, and 17 and of the corresponding modal grades 4, 8, and 12 for the national main assessments. Long-term trend studies were performed at the same grades/ages in reading, mathematics, writing, and science to provide links to results from previous assessments. A subsample of fourth-grade students taking part in the reading assessment was selected for a study of oral reading ability. A special study was conducted at age 9/grade 4 to determine the possible effects of changing the type of calculator used in the mathematics assessment. In addition, as part of a special study of school-based writing, NAEP collected writing papers from random samples of fourth- and eighth-grade students participating in the writing assessment. Included on the CD-ROM is a Userís Guide provided in electronic portable document format (PDF). This guide contains information on the contents and use of the data files on this disk as well as the assessment design and its implications for analysis. NAEP datasets from 2002 onward require a Tool Kit with the updated NAEPEX. Your organization must apply for and be granted a restricted-use data license in order to obtain these data.
