Gadway, Charles J.
Drawing inferences requires that an individual derive a conclusion not explicitly stated in the passage but which logically might be expected on the basis of the organization of the passage and the information it contains. In the summary of the data from Theme 7, the overall performance of the various groups is compared to the national level on the set of exercises representing Theme 7. Results are given for ages 9, 13, 17, and young adults. Within each age level across the nation as a whole and regionally, results are given for sex, color, level of parental education, and size and type of community. In summarizing the data for a group, the group's overall behavior and certain specific behaviors are discussed. (WR) Primary type of information provided by report: Results (Topical).
