NAEP and ACCUPLACER Content Comparison: Mathematics
Comprehensive Report: Alignment of 2009 NAEP Grade 12 Mathematics and ACCUPLACER Mathematics Core Tests
WESTED, 2010, GRADE 12
For mathematics, this report describes the four sub-studies comparing the two assessments—NAEP and ACCUPLACER—to the 2009 NAEP Framework and to the SAT framework.
The study discussed in this report evaluates the alignment between the NAEP and ACCUPLACER assessments in mathematics. The study design is comprised of a qualitative comparison of the NAEP mathematics framework and the ACCUPLACER mathematics core test specifications, conducted in April 2010, and a series of alignment activities designed to investigate the degree of alignment between the pairs of assessments and frameworks/specifications. These alignment activities are comprised of a series of four sub-studies to determine the degree of alignment between 1) the Grade 12 NAEP assessment and the NAEP framework, 2) the ACCUPLACER assessment and the ACCUPLACER framework, 3) the Grade 12 NAEP assessment and the ACCUPLACER framework, and 4) the ACCUPLACER assessment and the NAEP framework.
