Title:  NAEPFacts: Reading Assessment in the Nation's Fourth- and Eighth-Grade Classrooms
Description: As part of the 1994 National Assessment in Educational Progress (NAEP) in reading, the teachers of 6,692 fourth-graders and 7,651 eighth-graders were asked about their instructional and assessment techniques. Because the sample of students was representative of all fourth- and eighth-graders in the country, these results provide some indication of how America's fourth- and eighth-grade students are being assessed in reading.
