Local District Results. The Fourth Report of the 1972-73 Michigan Educational Assessment Program.
Michigan State Dept. of Education, Lansing. Research, Evaluation, and Assessment Services.
This report presents the 1972-73 educational assessment results from each of the school districts in Michigan. Information on each of the district measures used in the 1972-73 Michigan Educational Assessment Program is presented in two ways. First, a figure is shown that represents the district's "score" on each measure. For example, the average years of teaching experience, the average instructional expense (in dollars) per pupil, and the average reading score of each district are shown. Then a percentile rank is shown for each measure except the basic skills achievement measures. This percentile rank indicates how each district fared in relation to other districts in the state. Secondly, information about each district's composite basic skills achievement is presented in a decile distribution which shows the percentage of each district's fourth and seventh grade pupils earning composite achievement scores in each tenth of a statewide ranking of pupil scores. These decile distributions show what percent of each district's pupils fell into each of ten general achievement levels. Statistical terms used in this report are defined in Appendix A; Appendix B contains definitions of the educational assessment measures; Appendix C contains the definitions of the community types used in this report; Appendix D contains a list of the county code numbers used as a part of the identifications of local school districts; and Appendix E contains alternative procedures for interpreting district achievement scores through the use of statewide pupil norms.
