Language Arts, Grade 3; State Assessment of Educational Progress in North Carolina, 1973-74.
North Carolina State Dept. of Public Instruction, Raleigh. Div. of Research.
One of a series dealing with reading, mathematics, language arts, social studies, science, cultural arts, health, and physical education, this report on language arts is designed to help North Carolina teachers in planning instructional programs for public school students and to inform the general public of students' educational needs and attainments. This assessment contains results and analyses of tests administered to 2500 randomly selected third-grade students in North Carolina. The students' skills in language arts were assessed by a norm-referenced test (Iowa Test of Basic Skills) and an objective-based test (developed at the state level). Discussions of the nature of each of these tests and their interpretations as well as comparisons of achievement levels between North Carolina third graders and students throughout the United States are included. Numerous tables and graphs illustrate points made in the text. (LL)
