Second School Quality Workbook: The Quality Measurement Project.
New York State Education Dept., Albany. Bureau of School Programs Evaluation.
The Quality Measurement Project (QMP), initiated in 1957, published its final report, a School Quality Workbook, in 1963. When the achievement tests on which the QMP norms were based were renormed by the publisher, it was decided to test again in 1965. The results of that testing are reported herein. Testing was restricted to grades 5 and 8 in selected areas throughout New York State and background information was compiled on each student. The workbook is intended as an evaluative instrument to aid administrators in judging the quality of their school systems. The level of academic achievement with reference to students, school systems, and similar systems (large and medium cities, small cities, villages, large rural, and small rural) can be determined for the total test and subtests of the Iowa Tests of Basic Skills. Section I of the workbook explains the normative figures and tables in Appendices A-D which are based on school system mean achievement scores. Section II explains the tables in Appendices E-P which allow one to compare the achievement of certain defined student groups within a school system with similar groups elsewhere. Variables include father's education, mother's education, father's occupation, I.Q., and size and location of school. (CK)
