|Title:||Students Selecting Stories: The Effects of Choice in Reading Assessment|
|Description:||This report is comprised of three chapters, each focusing on a different aspect of the NAEP Reader Study. The first chapter presents findings related to the primary question of the study: Was student performance better when choice of stories was offered than when students were randomly assigned a story? The second chapter describes patterns of choices displayed by students who were allowed to select a story. The third chapter examines how student performance on the generically worded questions varied in relation to different stories and presents sample student responses. The report concludes with a discussion of study results and issues related to study design and interpretations.|
