California State Testing Program 1970-71: Profiles of School District Performance.
California State Dept. of Education, Sacramento. Office of Program Evaluation and Research.
The factors (variables) examined in the California State Testing Program were divided into two groups for the analyses: (1) the 11 indicators of school quality in terms of the products of the educational system, referred to as output factors (e.g., pupil scores on achievement tests); and (2) the 22 indicators of school quality in terms of the characteristics of school districts, referred to as input factors (e.g., assessed valuation, class size, tax rates, and teachers' salaries). Complete descriptions of these factors are given in Part I of this report. Part II of this report presents statewide testing data and other factors for 1970-71 for each school district in California. This detailed information makes it possible to compare the data for one school district with those of all other districts or with sets of districts having similar characteristics. Based on the analysis of various relationships, equations were developed which were used to obtain predicted test scores for each school district. The degree to which the actual scores of each district exceeded or fell short of the predicted scores is presented. (Author/BB)
