Results and Lessons Learned from the NAEP Problem Solving in Technology-Rich Environments Study

The Problem Solving in Technology-Rich Environments Study was the last in a series of three field investigations funded by the National Center for Education Statistics to explore the use of new technology in the US National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP). This demonstration study evaluated the performance of nationally representative samples of 8th graders on two computer-delivered, extended problem-solving scenarios. One scenario measured skill in electronic information search and the other assessed skill in using “,what-if”, simulation to discover physical relationships. Each scenario was taken by a different sample of approximately 1,000 students. Performance was judged by evaluating the quality of answers to open-ended and multiple-choice questions, and by assessing aspects of the process used to reach those answers. Study results were related to instrument functioning and to the relative performance of population groups.
