NCES 2023115 Highlights of PISA 2022 U.S. Results
This web report provides key comparative information on the reading, mathematics, and science literacy performance of 15-year-old students in the United States and 80 other participating education systems. The Program for International Student Assessment (PISA) is sponsored by the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) and focuses on students as they are nearing the end of compulsory schooling. PISA is conducted every 3 years, with 2022 being the latest round. In PISA 2022, the major domain was mathematics literacy, although reading and science literacy were also assessed. In addition to national average scores, PISA also provides insight into the percentage of students who reach each of the PISA proficiency levels.

NCES 2023004 Program for the International Assessment of Adult Competencies (PIAAC) County-level Estimation for Age and Education Groups Methodology Report
This is the third methodology report on Program for the International Assessment of Adult Competencies (PIAAC) Small Area Estimation (SAE) published by the National Center for Education Statistics in PIAAC Cycle I. The first report was written to describe the methodology used for the purpose of creating model-based estimates of average scores and high, middle, and low proficiency levels of adult skills for all states and counties in the U.S. The second report described the statistical models to produce the same types of estimates for state-level age and education groups. This report describes the methodology used to produce the county-level estimates by age and education groups.

NCES 2022121 2022 Long-Term Trend Reading and Mathematics Age 9 Highlights Report

This report describes selected results from the age 9 2022 long-term trend (LTT) reading and mathematics assessments. The report focuses on the comparison of a nationally representative sample of age 9 students who took the assessments in the winter of the 2019-2020 school year with those who took the assessments in the winter of 2021-2022 school year. The report provides insight into the performance of age 9 students in reading and mathematics, as well as data from students and school administrators about the widespread disruptions in learning that occurred during the 2020−2021 and 2021−2022 school years. In addition, the report provides links to data tables comparing 2022 performance in LTT reading and mathematics across all administrations dating back to the early 1970s.

NCES 2021077 2020 Long-Term Trend Reading and Mathematics Assessment Results at Age 9 and Age 13
This report presents the results of the National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) long-term trend assessments in reading and mathematics administered during the 2019–20 school year to 9- and 13-year-old students. Long-term trend assessments were first administered in the early 1970s; results are available for 13 reading assessments dating back to 1971 and 12 mathematics assessments dating back to 1973. This report provides trend results in terms of average scale scores, selected percentiles, and five performance levels. Item maps for each age group illustrate skills demonstrated by students when responding to assessment questions. Scale score results are included for students by selected background characteristics (e.g., race/ethnicity, gender, and grade attended). Overall, the 2020 average scores in reading and mathematics for 13-year-olds were higher than the earliest assessments but declined since 2012. Scores for the lowest-performing students (at the 10th percentile) decreased from 2012 at both ages and subjects.

NCES 2021122REV 2020-21 Common Core of Data (CCD) Preliminary Files

These files are the product of the CCD data collection for the 2020-21 school year. Data are reported at school and local education agency (LEA) levels as of October 1, 2020. The first preliminary files were released on April 2, 2021, and only contained school and LEA directory files (version 0a). Those data files were reviewed to verify that the data were within expected ranges, but did not undergo the full data quality follow-up process.

The revised SY 2020-21 CCD Preliminary Files include updated directory files (version 0b) as well as the preliminary membership files (version 0a).

  • LEA Level
    • Preliminary Directory (version 0b)
    • Preliminary Membership (version 0a)
  • State Level
    • Preliminary Membership (version 0a)

The preliminary school- and LEA-level Directory data (version 0b) in this release reflects updates made on the version 0a during the data quality follow-up period. These 0b files replace the 0a files released in April 2021. The preliminary school and LEA directory files include basic identifying information for each public school and LEA, including the NCES identification numbers, location and mailing address and some limited attributes about the school or LEA, such as type, operational status, the lowest and highest grade offered, and whether a school is a charter school. However, the preliminary directory does not include information regarding the mode of instructional delivery (e.g., in person, virtual) being used at the school for the 2020-21 school year.

The preliminary LEA membership file includes the total student count for each entity, while the preliminary state membership includes student counts by grade, race/ethnicity, and sex. While the preliminary membership files have been reviewed to verify that the counts are within expected ranges, the data in this release has not yet undergone the full data quality follow-up process and may contain errors that have not yet been resolved. They are meant to provide data users with a timely release of basic membership data at the LEA and state levels. Illinois was not able to submit membership data as of the submission deadline. Due to the preliminary nature of the data, users should analyze the data with caution.

NCES 2021029 2012–2016 Program for International Student Assessment Young Adult Follow-up Study (PISA YAFS): How reading and mathematics performance at age 15 relate to literacy and numeracy skills and education, workforce, and life outcomes at age 19
This Research and Development report provides data on the literacy and numeracy performance of U.S. young adults at age 19, as well as examines the relationship between that performance and their earlier reading and mathematics proficiency in PISA 2012 at age 15. It also explores how other aspects of their lives at age 19—such as their engagement in postsecondary education, participation in the workforce, attitudes, and vocational interests—are related to their proficiency at age 15.
