Texas State Survey of Hearing Impaired Children and Youth. Final Report, 1981-82.
Rawlings, Brenda W.; And Others
The report describes the sixth year in which a survey has been conducted on sensory impaired students in Texas. The survey resulted in information on student demographics and on performance on the Stanford Achievement Test for Hearing Impaired Students (SAT-HI). Demographic data revealed that hearing aids were widely used; that 43% of students in regional day school programs had profound hearing losses; and that 9% of the students in the regional programs used sign language in their instructional programs, even though only 37% used sign language at home. Assessment data examines the mean yearly growth in SAT-HI scores and presents an item analysis of the mathematics subtest of the SAT-HI as it compares to the Texas Statewide Curriculum for the Deaf. A section on the uses of the data management system considers such applications as tabulations prepared for each program submitting information and answers to special program planning requests. Among appendixes are survey forms and detailed demographic tables. (CL)
