2015 Survey Questionnaires Results: Students' Views of Mathematics, Reading, and Science (June 13, 2018)
As part of the National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP), students, teachers, and school administrators answer survey questionnaires. These questionnaires collect contextual information to provide a better understanding of educational experiences and factors that are related to students' learning both in and outside of the classroom and to allow for meaningful student group comparisons. For the 2015 NAEP mathematics, reading, and science assessments, nationally representative samples of students at grades 4, 8, and 12 answered survey questions about their views (i.e., levels of interest and enjoyment) of subject-related topics and activities. This report, the first in a series, takes an in-depth look at their responses, providing additional information with the 2015 NAEP achievement results.
