Grade 12 Standardized Departmental Tests: A Comparison of Norms of Students in the City of Toronto Secondary Schools and Ontario Secondary Schools.
Toronto Board of Education (Ontario). Research Dept.
A battery of objective examinations administered to Grade 12 students in Toronto and Ontario consisted of tests designated as Scholastic Aptitude Test (Verbal and Mathematics Sections), World History, Economics, Algebra, and Latin. Norms were prepared on the tests for each of three groups of students: General, Technical, and Commercial. The tests written by the groups were specific to their course. Tabular data is provided for class lists of scores for all students in each school, together with norms for each of the three groups and the percentile ranks. Norms computed for the Toronto schools are recorded in conjunction with the Ontario norms in eleven tables, and a graphic comparison of the norms is made in 15 additional figures. The results are addressed to principals and guidance department heads. Norms of Grade 12 students in Toronto secondary schools diverged frequently from the norms of all Grade 12 Ontario secondary students, with the Toronto students generally scoring higher. (LH)
