The Influence of External Evaluations on the National Assessment of Educational Progress
Robert L. Linn
The National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) has been the subject of many evaluations during its history. Those evaluations are reviewed, and the influences of recommendations made in the evaluations are discussed. It is concluded that many of the recommendations of evaluators have been heeded by those responsible for the design and conduct of NAEP.
