Manual for Interpreting Intermediate School Reports, Grade 9.
Burson, William W.
This manual is designed to aid the school administrator and staff in the interpretation of Pennsylvania's Educational Quality Assessment Report for Grade Nine. General background information is presented on the ten goals of quality education which were assessed. These goals include: self esteem; understanding others; basic verbal and math skills; health habits; interest in school; citizenship; creativity; vocational attitude and knowledge; appreciation of human accomplishments; and preparing for a changing world. Also presented are brief descriptions of the program's development, field testing, establishment of normative standards, and actual administrative procedures. The use and importance of input variables is described and illustrated in several norm charts. How expected scores are calculated is explained. A replica of a school quality report for a hypothetical ninth grade with important points noted composes a major part of the manual. The appendix includes: school information form; teacher questionnaire and graph of normal curve with Z scores and percentile equivalents. (MLP)
