Hartman, Allan S.; And Others
As part of a statewide (Massachusetts) evaluation in all areas of education, the reading assessment summarized 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. This report contains the following information: an overview of the assessment, including a description of the measurement instruments, test administration, sampling design, results, and interpretive activities; a report of statewide results by region; a comparison of Massachusetts results with the nation and the northeast region; a comparison of total test achievement by reporting groups; highlights of the principal and student questionnaires; and a discussion of the interpretations and recommendations of the assessment. Twelve data tables are provided, and appendixes identify regions and kinds of communities in the state's school districts and display item results by reporting group. (MAI)
