Romance, Nancy R.; Vitale, Michael R. – School Science and Mathematics, 2012
Addressed is the current practice in educational reform of reducing time for science instruction in favor of traditional reading/language arts instruction. In contrast, presented is an evidence-based rationale for increasing instructional time for K-5 science instruction as an educational reform initiative. Overviewed are consensus…

Carpenter, Thomas P.; And Others – School Science and Mathematics, 1982
National assessment data on student performance in several phases of algebra are reported. It is noted that this performance has not reached the point of mastery even for most students with two years of algebra and a year of geometry. However, the data are not thought to suggest complete failure. (MP)

Olson, Melfried – School Science and Mathematics, 1977
Eighteen computational skill exercises from the National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) were given to 117 prospective elementary teachers. The percentage of subjects answering each item correctly is compared with NAEP's findings for 13-, 17-, and 26-35-year-olds. (CP) Aspect of National Assessment (NAEP) dealt with in this document:…
