Objective 1 of 1: American Indian and Alaska Native students served by LEAs receiving Indian Education Formula Grants will progress at rates similar to those for all students in achievement to standards, promotion, and graduation.
Indicator 1.1 of 1: Student achievement: Increasing percentages of American Indian and Alaska Native students will meet or exceed the performance standards established by national assessments.

Survey/Assessment: National Assessment of Educational Progress.

Frequency: Biennially.

Next Data Available: February 2006

Data Validated By: NCES.
Data validated by National Center for Education Statistics review procedures and National Center for Education Statistics statistical standards.

Limitations: The small sample (for the sub-population of American Indian and Alaska Native students) means there is a high degree of standard error surrounding the estimates and limits data collection and possibilities for comparison to other populations. These estimates will vary greatly until a larger population is surveyed.
 
Explanation: NAEP assessments for reading and math are not administered annually. National trends indicate performance in reading and math are declining. American Indian and Alaska Native students were oversampled, in the 2005 NAEP assessments, in both reading and math, to increase the reliability of the data.
