The Nation's Report Card: Mathematics 2000

author: J.S. Braswell, A.D. Lutkus, W.S. Grigg, S.L. Santapau, B. Tay-Lim, M. Johnson
description: Abstract: "This report presents the results of the 2000 assessment in mathematics from the National Assessment of Educational Progress for the nation and for the participating states and jurisdictions. Comparisons are made to performance in previous national assessments in 1990, 1992 and 1996 at grades 4, 8, and 12. Other analyses look at results for various demographic subgroups (e.g. ethnic, SES, and special needs). The report presents information on contexts for learning mathematics, including teacher characteristics, classroom practices, use of computers/calculators, student attitudes toward mathematics, and out-of-classroom activities. The report also includes sample test questions and examples of student responses."
