    Type of Review: Revision.
    Title of Collection: National Assessment of Educational Progress 
(NAEP) 2012 Wave I (LTT Reading and Mathematics).
    OMB Control Number: 1850-0790.
    Agency Form Number(s): N/A.

    Affected Public: Individuals or households.
    Total Estimated Number of Annual Responses: 105,951.

    Abstract: The National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) is 
a Federally authorized survey of student achievement at grades 4, 8, 
and 12 in various subject areas, such as mathematics, reading, writing, 
science, U.S. history, civics, geography, economics, and the arts. In 
the current legislation that reauthorized NAEP (The No Child Left 
Behind Act of 2001 (Pub. L. 107-110)), Congress mandated again the 
collection of national education survey data through a national 
assessment program. In 2012, NAEP will administer Long-Term Trend (LTT) 
reading and mathematics assessments to students at ages 9, 13, and 17. 
The LTT assessments are designed to give information on the changes in 
academic performance since the 1970's. Measuring trends of student 
achievement or change over time requires the precise replication of 
past procedures. LTT assessments are administered every four years to 
students at ages 9, 13, and 17, in mathematics and reading. Student 
performance results are reported for the nation.
