The interactive NCES Results Display (iNRD) is a Shiny exploratory tool that visualizes results from NCES large-scale education data, including NAEP, across assessment years. The iNRD uses R statistical software and features an interactive interface with dropdowns, checkboxes, and slider bars for ease of use. When it is ready for public use, users will be able to explore NAEP results and create customized plots, including charts and maps, that display NAEP national, state, and Trial Urban District Assessment (TUDA) performance across multiple years, broken down across a variety of student groups. Users will also have the ability to download and save their plots to the png, pdf, or svg format.
The iNRD visualization tool addresses Phase 7 (Analyze and Report the Results) of the NAEP assessment process. Currently in its exploratory phase, iNRD has the potential to be a resource that meets the strategic vision to Inform, Innovate, & Engage by promoting “sustained dissemination and use of NAEP information beyond Report Card releases with consideration for multiple audiences and ever-changing multi-media technologies.”
Currently, the iNRD is not available for public use; however, the research team is continuing to work on its functionality and is hoping to make it available to the public in the near future.
