This report from the National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) presents results from the 2009 NAEP in reading. Nationally representative samples of more than 178,000 fourth-graders and 160,000 eighth-graders participated in the 2009 NAEP in reading. At each grade, students responded to questions designed to measure their knowledge of reading comprehension across two types of texts: literary and informational. At grade 4, the average reading score in 2009 was unchanged from the score in 2007 but was higher than the scores in other earlier assessment years from 1992 to 2005 (figure A). About two-thirds (67 percent) of fourth-graders performed at or above the "Basic" level in 2009, and one-third (33 percent) performed at or above "Proficient". Both percentages were unchanged from 2007 but were higher than previous assessment years. Eight percent of fourth-graders performed at the "Advanced" level, which was the same as in 2007 but higher than in 1992. At grade 8, the average reading score in 2009 was one point higher than in 2007 and four points higher than in 1992 but was not consistently higher than in all the assessment years in between. Gains since 2007 were seen for lower- and middle-performing students at the 10th, 25th, and 50th percentiles, while scores for higher-performing students at the 75th and 90th percentiles showed no significant change. In 2009, about three-quarters (75 percent) of eighth-graders performed at or above the "Basic" level, and one-third (32 percent) performed at or above "Proficient". Both percentages were higher in 2009 than in 2007 and 1992. Three percent of eighth-graders performed at the "Advanced" level in 2009, which was the same as the percentages in 2007 and 1992. Appendix tables are included. (Contains 23 figures and 32 tables.)
