January 21, 2014: CEEP Brief Looks at Newest NAEP Data
The newest CEEP Education Policy Brief, 2013 NAEP: How Does Indiana Compare?, examines recently released results from the National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP). Known as “The Nation’s Report Card,” NAEP is the U.S. Government assessment used since the late 1960s to measure student achievement in many subject areas, including mathematics, reading, science, and United States history. CEEP's policy brief discusses the results from several states and provides details of the 2013 Indiana results, followed by commentary on the extent to which state-level policies and priorities impacted those results.

January 17, 2014: CEEP Presentation at ISBA Event
CEEP representatives Peter Kloosterman, Ph.D., and Anne-Maree Ruddy, Ph.D., were invited to participate in this year’s Leadership Seminar sponsored by the Indiana School Boards Association. The January 17 event in Indianapolis was attended by approximately 150 school board members from around the state. Dr. Ruddy and Dr. Kloosterman presented, “National and International Assessments: How Do Indiana Students Compare?” They began the session by pointing out that none of the national or international assessment tools most often cited by policymakers and reporters are designed to rank countries or states.
Dr. Kloosterman is a Professor of Mathematics Education and the Martha Lea and Bill Armstrong Professor for Teacher Education at Indiana University. He also directs the “What Mathematics Do Students Know?” project at CEEP, a secondary analysis of mathematics data from the National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP). The project is funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF). Dr. Ruddy first came to CEEP in 2006. She is a Senior Research Associate and manages several large-scale regional, national and international evaluation and research projects. Her research background and interests are in policy analysis, development and implementation.
