A Report to the Board of Education of the Corvallis School District. Achievement Testing, 1979-80 School Year.
Corvallis School District 509J, OR.
The Comprehensive Tests of Basic Skills (CTBS) was administered to pupils in Grades 2 through 7, 9 and 11 during the 1979-80 school year as part of the Corvallis School District's testing program. Results of the CTBS, herein expressed as mean (average) percentile rank scores from each of the grades tested, are compared with those of prior years. Information on the interpretation of these findings is provided. Scores well above the national norm are reported. The highlights of the 1979-80 testing with the CTBS are briefly analyzed. The Corvallis School District's testing program allows for year-to-year comparison of student achievement. This level of continuity also helps teachers and curriculum analysts to study the year-to-year indications of strengths and weaknesses in school programs. The testing program, although important, is seen as only one measure of how well a school program is succeeding. (Author/AL)
