National Tests in Reading and Mathematics
The U.S. Department of Education is seeking contractual support for the development of the National Test in Reading and the National Test in Mathematics. The tests will provide an annual indication of overall individual student proficiency in reading (grade 4) and math (grade 8) that can be reported to parents and teachers. The first administration of the tests will be in 1999. All test items will be released to the public every year.
The Department has held public meetings on the national voluntary tests. To view the transcripts of meetings and other documents related to the national voluntary tests you are directed to http://www.ed.gov/nationaltests.
