Nevada Chapter 1 Basic and Advanced Skills Averages for 1989-90.
This report presents the basic and advanced skill averages for students participating in Chapter 1 programs of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act in Nevada in the 1989-90 school year. The report averages are based on a post-test measure only as most Nevada school districts are in the midst of changing instruments to determine student gains. The scores in this report are the post-test averages for the state compared to each district's average. This report consists of the Normal Curve Equivalent (NCE) scores for each participating school district. NCEs are standard scores constructed to have a standard deviation of 21.06. This value was selected because it produces an exact match between NCEs of 1 and 99 and percentiles of 1 and 99. In general, the greater the NCE score, the more effective the project. Data are reported for 15 Nevada school districts that conducted Chapter 1 programs in 1989-90. The subject or subjects which were taught are reported by grade level. Data are presented in 44 bar graphs arranged alphabetically by school district and include brief descriptions of the programs in each county. (JB)
