1999 Trends in Academic Progress: Three Decades of Student Performance - Since 1969, the National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) has conducted ongoing nationwide assessments of student achievement in various subjects. This report presents the results of NAEP's long-term trend assessments in reading, mathematics and science that were administered in 1999 to students aged 9, 13 and 17.
