The National Center for Education Statistics (NCES) has online the full text, summary, and highlights of the NAEP 1998 Reading Report Card. In 1998, NAEP conducted a national reading assessment of fourth, eighth, and twelfth grade students and compared the results to those in 1994 and 1992. The report finds that, although scores did not increase for students at all levels of achievement, the national average reading score did rise for all three grades overall in 1998. The full text of the report provides "average scores and achievement level performance for the nation," as well as "results for subgroups of students defined by various background and contextual characteristics." Users looking for a summary of the major findings at a national level and an analysis of the at-home and school experiences that foster students' reading performance can turn to the Highlights report, available in HTML and .pdf formats.
