Summary
The National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) is a continuing survey of the knowledge, skills, and attitudes of young Americans. Each year during the period 1970-1980, 75,000 to 100,000 persons were assessed in the following learning areas: reading, reading/literature, mathematics, science, and citizenship/social studies. Data are presented for 9-year-olds, 13-year-olds, and 17-year-olds for the academic years 1970-1971, 1972-1973 to 1977-1978, and 1979-1980, in the form of "Booklet" files. At the school level, background variables include the region, census division, type and size of community, occupation mix of attendance area, grade range, racial composition, total enrollment, and Title I eligibility. At the respondent level, items cover age, sex, race, parents' education, and reading materials in the home. From the school year 1972-1973 on, regional migration variables are included for the older age groups. From 1975-1976 on, 17-year-olds were asked a number of additional background questions, including their homework and TV viewing habits, languages spoken in the home, racial/ethnic heritage, and household possessions
