Six urban districts have volunteered to join the National Assessment of Educational Progress' Trial Urban District Assessment Program, bringing the number of participating districts to 27.

Clark County, Nev., which includes Las Vegas; Denver; Fort Worth, Texas; Guilford County, N.C.; Milwaukee; and Shelby County, Tenn., which includes Memphis, are the newcomers to TUDA, which collects and reports on 4th and 8th graders' performance in math and reading on NAEP in select urban districts.

The districts, which were voted in by the National Assessment Governing Board, will be included in the program next year.
