1984 TABS Final Report.
Austin Independent School District, TX. Office of Research and Evaluation.
This report presents Austin Independent School District 1984 test results on the Texas Assessment of Basics Skills (TABS). It was administered to all third, fifth and ninth grade students and to high school students not meeting ninth grade state-set mastery criteria, the minimum competency requirement for graduation. Results are presented as percentages of students demonstrating mastery of each objective. Exit-level results also include the percentage of students mastering each test section (mathematics, reading, and writing). Mastery levels are not set for grades 3 and 5, so the average percentage of students demonstrating mastery on each objective is used as an overall score for these grades. The results are presented in five attachments: (1) the Summary Reports for each grade, which also contain demographic data such as ethnicity and special program participation; (2) results by objectives, 1980-1984; (3) results of exit level mastery, by grade and year; (4) results by ethnicity and test area, 1980-1984; and (5) school comparisons, for 1984 by grade.
