Maryland Accountability Testing Program Annual Report. School Year 1982-1983.
Maryland State Dept. of Education, Baltimore.
In this report, basic skills areas for three grade levels are covered, along with average grade equivalent scores on the California Achievement Tests for the 1982-83 school year. Included are reading comprehension, language, and mathematics scores for grades 3, 5, and 8. The major findings from analyses of the statewide result indicate that the participating Maryland pupils in the fall of 1982 scored higher than the 1976 national norm sample for these grades. In addition to detailed tables of the test results by school, district, and state, this report includes: (1) a definition of educational accountability and an introduction to the Maryland Educational Accountability Program; (2) the State Board of Education's Resolution on Assessment Program; and (3) a description of the assessment instruments used to measure academic achievement.
