Levels of Educational Performance and Related Factors in Michigan. The Fifth Report of the 1970-71 Michigan Educational Assessment Program.
Donovan, David; And Others
The fifth report of the Michigan Educational Assessment Program contains education profiles for State school districts, schools and pupils. The profiles deal with: (1) human resources--such as pupil/teacher ratio and percent of teachers with master's degree; (2) school financial resources--such as local revenue per pupil and State school aid per pupil; (3) student background; (4) school/student performance (grades 4 and 7)--attitude measures, basic skills measures, and dropout rate; and (5) school or district size. The profiles present information assembled separately for each of five community types--metropolitan core city, city, urban fringe, town, and rural. Within this framework, profiles are constructed from: (1) district-level mean scores on the educational assessment measures; (2) school-level mean scores; and (3) individual pupil scores. Precautions that should be observed and definitions of statistical terms are included. Appendix A contains definitions of the five community types; the measures used in the educational assessment program are defined in Appendix B. (For related documents, see TM 002 326, 328-330.) (KM)
