Hartman, Allan S.; And Others
As part of a statewide (Massachusetts) evaluation in all areas of education, the reading assessment described in this report tested all 9- and 17-year-old students in 31 school districts in an effort to examine student performance statewide as well as in the individual educational regions and communities. The first four chapters of the report contain a summary of the design and methodology of the assessment, and the remaining chapters present detailed analyses of the following assessment results: statewide achievement results; a comparison of the state with the nation and the northeast region; year-to-year comparisons; achievement results for reporting groups; the results of the student questionnaire; the results of the principal questionnaire; and results of the survey of reading specialists. The report provides 24 tables and figures and seven appendixes of supporting documents for the assessment. (MAI)
