Manitoba Mathematics Assessment Program, 1981. Final Report.
Manitoba Dept. of Education, Winnipeg.
This document contains conclusions, recommendations, a summary of results, and interpretations of the 1981 Mathematics Assessment Program. The Assessment Program involved the production of achievement tests and teacher questionnaires for the third, sixth, ninth, and twelth-grade students. These were a test related to general mathematics skills, and tests reflecting the Mathematics 300 and Mathematics 301 courses. Performance in Measurement and Geometry was disappointing across all grade levels. Grade three showed satisfactory performance on whole number computation in addition and multiplication, but was weak on inverse operations of subtraction and division. Interpretation of bar graphs, linear measurement, and nonnumerical geometry was well done, while numerical applications in geometry caused difficulty. Major findings are also listed for grades six, nine, and the three testing levels of grade twelve. Detailed analysis and discussion of sample problems are presented in discussions of each testing group, and aspects of the teacher survey results are included. (MP)
