How Good Are Utah Public Schools?
Wainwright, Bruce; And Others
A statewide evaluation effort was conducted in Utah in the Spring 1970 to determine how well students in the public schools were attaining specified goals and objectives. A sample of students at all grade levels throughout the state were involved in the study. Data were gathered from test scores, school records, self-ratings, and ratings by teachers. The focus of the study was on student behavior rather than on school programs. Nineteen scales from the Student Information System were used in the study. These scales assessed: Cognitive Skills, Learning Habits, Psychomotor Creativity, Personal Adjustment, Social Admustment, Maturity, Flexibility, Reality, Athletic Ability, Positive Learning Attitude, Positive School Attitude, Positive Community Attitude, Positive Attitude Toward Others, Positive Attitude Toward Self as a Learner, Positive Self-Attitude, Self-Confidence, Healthy Aspirations, Optimistic Attitude, and Leadership. The data collected are provided in 27 tables. Appendix A to the report is a Summary of SIS Data Obtained for This Report, and Appendix B is a Position Paper on Evaluation. (DB)
