Title:  NAEP 1996 Mathematics Cross-State Data Compendium for Grade 4 and Grade 8 Assessment
Description: In response to legislation passed by Congress in 1988, the NAEP program includes voluntary state-by-state assessments. The state assessment program was initiated in 1990 on a trial basis with the assessment of mathematics achievement of eighth-grade students in public schools. The 1992 Trial State Assessment (TSA) assessed public school students in fourth-and eighth-grade mathematics and fourth-grade reading. In 1994, 44 jurisdictions participated in a fourth-grade reading assessment. Because of the positive evaluations of the 1990, 1992, and 1994 TSAs, the 'trial' designation has been removed from the 1996 state-level NAEP assessment. The NAEP 1996 Mathematics State Assessment Program was comprised of a state-by-state mathematics assessment of fourth- and eighth-grade students enrolled in both public and nonpublic schools, with 48 jurisdictions participating in this assessment program, for at least one of the grade levels.
