This report provides selected results from the 2002 National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) for Department of Defense Schools (Overseas)'s public-school students at grades 4 and 8. Since 1992, reading has been assessed in four different years at the state level (at grade 4 in 1992 and 1994, and at both grades 4 and 8 in 1998 and 2002). The Department of Defense Schools (Overseas) (DoDDS) participated in the 1994, 1998, and 2002 assessments at grades 4 and 8 and met the criteria for reporting public-school results for both grades. Key findings for grade 4 are: the average scale score for students in the DoDDS was 224, which was higher than that in 1998 (221); students' scale scores in the DoDDS were higher than those in 30 jurisdictions, lower than those in 3 jurisdictions, and the difference was not found to be significant for 14 jurisdictions; and the percentage of students in the DoDDS who performed at or above the "Proficient" level was 33%, which was not found to differ significantly from that in 1998 (33%). Key findings for grade 8 are: the average scale score for students in the DoDDS was 273, which was higher than that in 1998 (269); students' scale scores in the DoDDS were higher than those in 43 jurisdictions, and the difference was not found to be significant for 3 jurisdictions; and the percentage of students in the DoDDS who performed at or above the "Proficient" level was 40%, which was not found to differ significantly from that in 1998 (37%). After an introduction, the report presents overall results, comparisons between states, reading performance by demographic characteristics, and it discusses moving toward a more inclusive NAEP, and where to find more information.
