The National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) provides data about what children know and can do with the goal of using this information to improve education. This book contains interpretive reports based on results from the mathematics assessments conducted by the NAEP regarding: (1) the cognitive performance of students at grades 4, 8, and 12 on multiple-choice, regular constructed-response, and extended constructed response items; (2) students' responses to a variety of background questions dealing with their beliefs and feelings toward mathematics and their participation in various forms of classroom activity; and (3) teachers' responses to various background questions dealing with the nature of their mathematics instruction. The results are summarized for the different grade levels and subgroups of students by gender and race/ethnicity. Chapters include: (1) "Learning about NAEP: Information Concerning the Sixth Mathematics Assessment" (Patricia Ann Kenney); (2) "NAEP Mathematics-1990-1992: The National, Trial State, and Trend Assessments" (John A. Dossey and Ina V. S. Mullis); (3) "NAEP Findings Regarding Race/Ethnicity and Gender: Affective Issues, Mathematics Performance, and Instructional Context" (Edward A. Silver, Marilyn E. Strutchens, and Judith S. Zawojewski); (4) "NAEP Findings Regarding the Preparation and Classroom Practices of Mathematics Teachers" (Mary Montgomery Lindquist); (5) "What Do Students Know about Numbers and Operations?" (Vicky L. Kouba, Judith S. Zawojewski, and Marilyn E. Strutchens); (6) "What Do Students Know about Measurement?" (Patricia Ann Kenney and Vicky L. Kouba); (7) "What Do Students Know about Geometry?" (Marilyn E. Strutchens and Glendon W. Blume); (8) "What Do Students Know about Data Analysis, Statistics, and Probability?" (Judith S. Zawojewski and David S. Heckman); (9) "What Do Students Know about Algebra and Functions?" (Glendon W. Blume and David S. Heckman); and (10) "Learning from NAEP: Looking Back and Looking Ahead" (Edward A. Silver). (JRH)

The School Teacher in England and the United States: The Findings of Empirical Research investigates what makes school teachers distinct from other people in England and the United States. This book brings together for the first time the findings of a very large number of surveys on both sides of the Atlantic designed to throw light on a number of critical questions, such as the teachers' family backgrounds, their motives for becoming teachers, or the types of role-conflict affecting teachers in general, and women teachers (including married women) in particular. This monograph is comprised of 10 chapters and begins by comparing the British and American educational settings. The next chapter discusses the role that society is believed to expect teachers to fulfill, such as emancipation from the child's primary emotional attachment to his family, or the technical component of the skills which have to be transmitted to the pupils to enable them to fulfill their future adult roles. The empirical evidence on society's view of what role the teachers should play is then analyzed. A typology of incompatibilities inherent in teacher role is also presented. The remaining chapters focus on the teachers' expressed motivation in career choice; the stages at which people choose teaching; teacher effectiveness and career satisfaction; and the teachers' professional status. The final chapter considers some policy alternatives for addressing the training and supply of teachers. This text will be a useful resource for teachers, school administrators, and educational policymakers.
