Maryland Accountability Program Report V. School Year 1977-1978. Revised.
Maryland State Dept. of Education, Baltimore.
The fifth report required by the Maryland Educational Accountability Act contains information about goals for Maryland public education and progress toward those goals. The first section explains accountability, the Maryland Accountability Act, and limitations of current instruments for measuring learning progress. The central purpose of the report is to present Maryland accountability assessment information. The reading, writing, and mathematics skills covered by the Iowa Tests of Basic Skills have been assessed in the third, fifth, and seventh grades for the past five academic years. The average grade equivalent scores, by skill area, are shown for each school within each county. Tables display the countywide average grade equivalents for the tests, along with the average nonverbal ability scores, over the past four Maryland Accountability Program reporting years. The last section of the report contains a short summary of progress in some special program areas in the state. (Author/MLF)
