As part of the 2017 NAEP reading assessment, students, teachers, and school administrators answered survey questionnaires. These questionnaires provide information about students' educational experiences and factors that are related to students' learning both in and outside of the classroom. Selected results are highlighted below for studentsâ€™ access to and use of digital technology in school, classroom learning and instruction for reading, and studentsâ€™ enjoyment of complex problems. You can also explore the grade 4 and 8 student, teacher, and school questionnaires or use the NAEP Data Explorer to view other results from the questionnaires.
Findings are presented for individual survey questions as well as for indices composed of a set of related survey questions that measure particular topics of interest. Learn more about the development of NAEP survey questionnaire indices.
