Oklahoma Educational Status Study. Reading and Math. Grades 3, 6, 9, 12. School Year 1977-78.
Oklahoma State Dept. of Education, Oklahoma City.
The Oklahoma Educational Status Study was conducted to determine student achievement in reading and mathematics. A stratified random sampling of students in grades 3, 6, and 9, were administered the mathematics and reading subtests of the California Achievement Tests (CAT); twelfth grade students were administered only a criterion-referenced test, the Senior High Assessment of Reading Performance (SHARP). For grades 3, 6, and 9, the following conclusions were reached: more students scored above, rather than below, their grade levels in reading and mathematics; third grade students scored higher in reading than in mathematics; students were achieving as well or better than national norms; and at every level, for both reading and mathematics, more students scored above, rather than below, the average. The following objectives were measured by SHARP: following directions, getting information, and using maps and forms. It was determined that: 93 percent achieved at or above the mastery level; students achieved a higher level of mastery in the section on reading for information than on the other two sections; and performed as well or better than students in most other states that have given the test.
