Performance Indicators Workbook: Edition I, for Calculating School District Performance in Elementary School Reading and Arithmetic.
New York State Education Dept., Albany. Bureau of School Programs Evaluation.
The Performance Indicators in Education program is designed to develop methods of measuring the performance in reading and arithmetic achievement at the elementary school level of the schools of New York State. From data on file at the State Education Department, a set of profiles was developed for each of 628 school districts indicating how the district performed in elementary school reading and arithmetic. This workbook provides worksheets to aid the 100-plus districts that did not receive profiles in calculating their performance scores for the 1969-70 and 1970-71 school years. The worksheets, samples of which are provided in the appendixes, are: (1) four "Foundation Sheets" upon which the district's data are entered; (2) eight separate "Equation Worksheets" that provide a measure of one of the criteria--reading or arithmetic--for grade 3 or 6; and (3) blank "Profile of School District Characteristics" forms upon which derived measures may be recorded. A list of symbols is also provided. Uses and limitations of the profiles are discussed in the publication "Performance Indicators in Education, Local District Results--1972," which is available from the Bureau of School Programs Evaluation of the New York State Education Department.
