1974-75 Philadelphia City-Wide Testing Program; February 1975 Achievement Testing Program. School Performance Distributions: Kindergarten through Grade Twelve.
This is a report of pupil performance in Philadelphia schools based upon the February 1975 Philadelphia City-Wide Testing Program involving all pupils in kindergarten through grade 12. School performance distributions show the combined percentages of pupils in each school scoring within various national percentile rank ranges. The performance distributions describe four groups of pupils in each school: (1) below national 16th percentile, (2) between the 16th to 49th national percentiles, (3) between the 50th to 84th national percentiles, and (4) 85th national percentile or above. These lists provided for the city, each of the eight districts, and all schools show the full range of pupil performance in the various test areas compared to national pupil norms provided by the test publishers. For kindergarten only the total battery results in the Stanford Early School Achievement Test are given. For the California Achievement Tests, total score results are given for each of the test areas and the total battery. For reference, the performance distributions for the national norm, city, and district are also given. Data are organized by district for all elementary schools in district order. Schools are listed alphabetically in each district. The middle, junior high, senior high, and area vocational-technical schools follow next with schools listed alphabetically without regard for district location. (RC)
