EdSurvey is an R statistical package designed for the analysis of national and international education data from the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES). EdSurvey is a free resource, tailored to the processing and analysis of NCES large-scale education data—including NAEP—with appropriate procedures to analyze these data efficiently, taking into account their complex sample survey design and the use of plausible values.
The EdSurvey R statistical package addresses Phase 7 (Analyze and Report the Results) of the NAEP assessment process. EdSurvey meets the strategic vision to Inform, Innovate, & Engage by expanding “the availability, utility and use of NAEP.” Training offered under the NAEP R&D program can “strengthen and expand partnerships by broadening stakeholders’ awareness of NAEP and facilitating their use NAEP resources.”
