Extractions: NOTES ABOUT THE 1999 FINDINGS: AMERICAN SAMOA These pages present highlights for your state from the 1999 National Education Goals Report and the companion 1999 Data Volume . The annual Goals Report uses 27 national and 34 state-level indicators to measure progress made toward the eight National Education Goals since 1990, when the Goals were established. This fact sheet summarizes your states progress in key educational areas during the 1990s. Please note the following points: Data sources: The sources of the national and state data are large-scale data collections, research studies, and assessments conducted by universities, education organizations, and federal agencies such as the National Center for Education Statistics and the National Center for Health Statistics. Data comparability: Only comparable state data are included in the annual Goals Reports to ensure that state comparisons are fair. Recency of data: The Goals Panel is committed to providing the most recent data available in its annual reports. Some of the data sets used to monitor state and national progress are updated annually, but most are updated every two, three, or four years. In a few cases, the most recent data available were collected during the early or mid-1990s. For example, the most recent adult literacy data (Goal 6), were collected in 1992; they will be updated in 2002. The most recent national data on history achievement and geography achievement (Goal 3) were collected in 1994; they will be updated in 2001. International mathematics and science data for the nation (Goal 5) were last collected in 1995; they are being updated during 1999. The most recent data on teacher education and professional development (Goal 4), parental participation (Goal 8), and teacher victimization and class disruptions (Goal 7) were collected in 1994; they will be updated in 2000.
