This is an assessment framework, not a curriculum framework. In broad terms, this framework attempts to answer the question: What mathematics should be assessed in 2009 on NAEP at grades 4, 8 and 12? The answer to this question must necessarily take into account the constraints of a large-scale assessment such as NAEP, with its limitations on time and resources. Of critical importance is the fact that this document does not attempt to answer the question: What mathematics should be taught (or how)? The framework was developed with the understanding that some concepts, skills, and activities in school mathematics are not suitable to be assessed on NAEP, though they may well be important components of a school curriculum. An example would be an extended project that involves gathering data, or a group project.

This Reading Framework for the 2009 National Assessment of Educational Progress sets forth the design of a test of reading comprehension. The exam requires students to read passages of written English text -- either literary or informational -- and to answer questions about what they have read. In some cases, the questions deal with facts in the text or vocabulary. In other cases, a complete answer requires a clear analysis or coherent argument supported by sound evidence from the text. This is the second Reading Framework approved by the National Assessment Governing Board. It will replace the Reading Framework that has been used in NAEP since 1992, and will start a new trend. The new Reading Framework is the result of extraordinary effort and commitment by hundreds of persons across the country, including some of the nation's leading figures in reading research, assessment, and instruction.

Across the country, districts are choosing to #GoOpen and transitioning to the use of openly licensed educational resources to improve student learning in their schools. Openly licensed educational resources enable districts to reallocate significant funds currently spent on inflexible, static learning materials to resources and activities that accelerate the transition to digital learning. These include implementing new professional learning programs for teachers, developing a robust technology infrastructure to support digital learning, and funding new leadership roles for educators who curate and create openly licensed educational materials.
The #GoOpen District Launch Packet is designed for districts that have decided to implement a systematic approach to incorporating openly licensed educational resources into their curriculum by becoming a #GoOpen District.
