National Survey of Assessment
National Survey of Assessment, prepared by Education Market Research in 2008, provides an analysis of the estimated $2.52 billion U.S. market for elementary and secondary academic testing materials for grades 3-12.
This report provides an objective look at the assessment market segment based on the results of a detailed survey that was mailed in spring 2008 to 20,000 classroom teachers in grades 3-5, English/language arts chairpersons in grades 6-12, mathematics chairpersons in grades 6-12, principals in grades 3-5, district level curriculum/instruction supervisors, and district level academic testing directors.
National Survey of Assessment identifies the leading assessment materials used in schools; the types of standardized reading and mathematics assessments currently adopted; the percent of schools/districts with “high-stakes” testing in place, and grade levels and subjects most frequently tested; the types of classroom diagnostic/prescriptive testing done throughout the school year, and most popular features of such classroom testing products; and demand for and characteristics of new classroom testing and/or test preparation products.
If you need to know which assessment programs and publishers are most popular, how much is being spent, and what the demand is for new testing materials, you can’t afford to be without National Survey of Assessment.
