The NAEP Trial Urban District Assessment (TUDA) is designed to explore the feasibility of using NAEP to report on the performance of fourth- and eighth-grade public school students at the district level. Eleven urban districts participated in the third TUDA in mathematics in 2007. Students from these districts took the same assessment as those students sampled nationally for the main NAEP mathematics assessment, and their data were included as part of the national and state results presented in other 2007 NAEP reports.
