The Nation’s Report Card: Economics 2012 – April 2013 – National Center for Education Statistics

  • “This report presents results of the National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) 2012 economics assessment. National results for a representative sample of students at grade 12 are reported as average scale scores and as percentages of students performing at or above three achievement levels: Basic, Proficient, and Advanced. Scores are also reported at selected percentiles, showing changes in the performances of lower, middle, and higher performing students. The report includes results for student groups defined by various demographic characteristics (e.g., race/ethnicity, gender, and level of parental education), as well as sample assessment questions with examples of student responses. Results from the 2012 assessment are compared to those from 2006. The Technical Notes provide information on NAEP samples and school and student participation rates.”
