 National Indian Education Study 2007 Part I: Performance of American Indian
and Alaska Native Students at Grades 4 and 8 on NAEP 2007 Reading and
Mathematics Assessments

**The 2007 National Indian Education Study (NIES) was conducted by the
National Center for Education Statistics on behalf of the U.S. Department of
Education, Office of Indian Education. This report presents the results for
Part I of the study focusing on the perfor-mance of American Indian and
Alaska Native (AI/AN) fourth- and eighth-graders on the 2007 National
Assessment of Educational Progress in reading and mathematics.*

In 2007 at both grades, AI/AN students attending schools in which less than
25 percent of the students were AI/AN scored higher than their peers
attending schools with higher concentrations of AI/AN students, and those
attending public schools scored higher than their peers in Bureau of Indian
Education schools.

While the overall average reading scores for AI/AN students were lower than
the scores for non-AI/AN students at both grades in 2007, they were not
consistently lower than the scores for all racial/ethnic groups.
