Analysis of Data from the North Carolina Statewide Assessment of Educational Progress.
Dunteman, George H.
The probability sample was a two-stage stratified sample. The first-stage units were schools and the second-stage units were students. Because certain subpopulations were oversampled, the data had to be weighted for analysis purposes. The analyses concerned contrasting North Carolina and its various subpopulations with the nation on standardized aptitude and achievement tests. Constrasts between various subpopulations defined by geographical region, type of community, and socioeconomic status within North Carolina, were also made on cognitive and non-cognitive output measures. In addition, the relationship of various school process variables to achievement measures was investigated. (Author)
