Mathematics, Grade 3. State Assessment of Educational Progress in North Carolina, 1973-74.
North Carolina State Dept. of Public Instruction, Raleigh. Div. of Research.
This report is one of eight concerning third-grade students to be issued in connection with the North Carolina statewide assessment project. The assessment of mathematics achievement is based on a sample of 5,000 third-grade students, 2,500 using the Iowa Tests of Basic Skills (ITBS), and 2,500 using state developed objective-based tests (SCORE). Data were analyzed statewide and on the basis of several socioeconomic factors. On the average North Carolina third-grade students scored several months below the national average on the ITBS. The areas in which these students tended to score below the national average were the U. S. monetary system, modern mathematics concepts, complex computational problems, and fractions. Students did perform adequately on SCORE. Appendices to this report provide tables describing the relationships of ITBS scores with socioeconomic variables, analysis of scores as a function of subtests, teacher ratings of SCORE objectives, and several analyses for SCORE items.
