Phase IV: Educational Needs Assessment For Washington State Students. March 1973. (Summary).
Brouillet, Frank B.
The results of the Washington Elementary Educational Assessment Project (WEEAP) are presented in this report. The purposes of the Assessment project were (1) to assess the reading and mathematics achievement in Washington elementary schools by sampling fourth and sixth grade students in randomly selected school buildings; (2) to identify instructional objectives and to determine the degree to which students are achieving those objectives; and (3) to determine the degree to which students are achieving the level expected of them. Three instruments were administered concurrently; the California Achievement Tests, 1970; the Short Form Test of Academic Aptitude; and a fact sheet describing school characteristics, completed by school personnel. Six main conclusions were drawn from the results of the assessment, including the fact that the students generally scored as anticipated in reading and significantly below expectation in mathematics.
