Title:  Working Paper: ACT's NAEP REDESIGN PROJECT: Assessment Design is the Key to Useful and Stable Assessment Results
Description: This report presents an investigation by ACT of an alternative design for the National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP).

The design has the potential to provide more timely results by using procedures that are less complex and that are easier to understand than are current procedures.
