Reading Achievement. Report No. 14-8.
The results of the 1980 Atlanta, Georgia, public schools reading scores for the Iowa Test of Basic Skills (ITBS) are presented in this report for grades one through seven. Raw scores and grade equivalents are presented first, followed by a comparison of the 1980 grade equivalents with those from the previous four years, indicating a steady improvement in reading skills at all grade levels. The Atlanta scores are then compared with national scores, indicating that grades three through seven fall below the national norm, although gains for Atlanta remain positive. The report then indicates the percentage of Atlanta students reading above the national norm, showing a steady increase from 1975 through 1980. A discussion of the change from the ITBS to the California Achievement Test (CAT) for 1981 and how the change will affect scores concludes the report. (HOD)
