Pupil Achievement-Comparison of Two Schools, Leflore County School District, Mississippi. Reports of Consultants and Advisory Specialists under Planning Grant, Title III, Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965.
Curtis, Hazen A.
Student bodies in each of 2 Leflore County schools in rural Mississippi (1 school practically all Negro and the other mainly white) are described in terms of their academic achievement in principal subject matter areas. In both schools, pupils are enrolled from grades 1 through 12, and standardized tests were administered at selected grade levels. The analysis and results of the study are presented for each school separately, and the assumption is made and supported that achievement patterns of the 2 schools are indeed different due to differing pupil backgrounds. The report concludes with a broad general summary of each school separately and a section for utilizing test results that may be equally applicable to both schools. Median achievement tables are presented for each school, followed by general recommendations (e.g., that a testing program can yield information as to what concepts and skills should or should not be taught to assist the teachers in identifying strengths and weaknesses in the instructional program). The work was prepared under Title III of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act. [Not available in hard copy due to marginal legibility of original document.] (AN)
