Vocabulary Results from the 2009 and 2011 NAEP Reading Assessments - The National Assessment of Educational Progress first integrated word meaning into passage comprehension in 2009, so this report offers the first comparisons that can be made over time. Fourth- and eighth-grade scores did not change significantly; 12th-graders were not assessed in 2011. The report, which assessed word meaning within the context of passages, found some changes at the percentile level. Both 4th- and 8th-grade students in higher-performing percentiles scored lower in 2011 than in 2009. Low-performing 8th-graders scored higher in 2011. Students eligible for free or reduced-price lunch, students with disabilities and English language learners scored lower than their demographic opposites. A comparison of state scores in 2011 may be found on page 8. Additional state results appear in appendix tables A-4 through A-6. (National Center for Education Statistics, December 2012)...
