The National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) has released a new version of the NAEP Data Explorer (NDE).
The new tool takes advantage of the latest internet technology to present users with a friendlier interface, enhanced analysis selections, and improved reporting options to aid researchers, policy-makers, the media, and others interested in investigating the results from NAEP assessments.  NDE users will find powerful graphing capabilities, achievement levels as variables or statistics, new Large Central City and National Private jurisdictions, and the option to perform gap analysis on any combination of variables, years, or jurisdictions.
The new NDE will also improve the way in which the user is able to interact with the reports he has created, customizing them and exporting them beyond the NDE application into a variety of formats, including Microsoft Word, Excel, PDF, and HTML.
NAEP has provided informative alerts and detailed Help to assist users in taking advantage of the new NDE capabilities. Find it all at http://nces.ed.gov/nationsreportcard/naepdata/
NAEP, the National Assessment of Educational Progress, is administered by the National Center for Education Statistics within the Institute of Education Sciences.
