Northeastern Educational Placement Guide in Reading, Arithmetic and Spelling (Local Norms 1968-1971) as Measured by the Wide Range Achievement Test, 1965 Revision.
Murphy, George M.; And Others
The Wide Range Achievement Test (WRAT) yields raw scores, standard scores, and percentile scores for reading skill, spelling skill, and arithmetic computational skill, and is applicable for determining student competence in these areas for pre-kindergarten through college level. Because national norms on the 1965 revised WRAT are not, however, completely relevant for local usage, rural and semi-urban Connecticut local beginning, middle, and end of year norms have been compiled and are presented in this document, for grades one through twelve. Sampling for the establishment of these norms was accomplished by assigning a number to every child in each grade (1 through 12) in 17 public and private schools in a 6-town region of Northwestern Connecticut. Subsequently, 35 numbers were randomly selected for each grade for each of the 3 sample groups (beginning, middle, and end of year), resulting in 36 separate sets of randomly selected numbers or a total sample in excess of 1,200 students. Included in this report are local percentile equivalents to national norm grade scores, as well as tables which report the mean and standard deviation for the sample for all 3 subject areas on the WRAT, by grade, as well as the average and expected deviations or grade span. A related document is RC 003 427. (EV)
