Aligning Science Assessment Standards: Texas and the 2009 National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP)




This policy research document is intended for Texas policymakers to use when examining possible changes to the state assessment's alignment with the National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP). The 2009 NAEP test is not yet in existence, so the purpose of this report is to give policymakers a headstart in determining where they might, if they so decide, begin to make changes in their assessment standards and specifications to develop an assessment system more closely aligned to that used for the NAEP.
