Special Report on Pupil Achievement 1981-82 for Bryan Adams High School, [and] Robert E. Lee Elementary School, [and] Northwest Subdistrict. [In Three Parts].
Dallas Independent School District, TX. Dept. of Research, Evaluation, and Information Systems.
Each year, through its system-wide testing program, the Dallas Independent School District collects and reports assessment data on the achievement of its pupils. The data are summarized in a variety of ways in different reports to meet the needs of a particular audience. The three reports in this year's series were produced by computer, using a programmable page printer. Tables containing summaries of achievement data have been modified, and new tables have been added. Throughout the reports there is an absence of interpretations and conclusions, and the reader is cautioned against making generalizations based on the limited data displayed. Each report contains an introduction; a description of tables, some of which are unique to a particular report; school related data, including teacher and student variables, attendance data, and survey data of 1981 graduates (for the high school reports); and achievement data, norm-referenced results of the specific tests administered by each school. Tests used included the Metropolitan Readiness Test Level 2, Iowa Tests of Basic Skills, Comprehensive Tests of Basic Skills Espanol, Tests of Achievement and Proficiency, Assessment of Baseline Curriculum, Basic Objectives Assessment Tests, and Texas Assessment of Basic Skills. Glossaries in each report explain terms used throughout. (LC)
