This report provides descriptive information for public officials and the general public about Maryland's public schools. It is the second report required by the Maryland Educational Accountability Act. This second report contains information about: the implementation of the Maryland Accountability Program on the State and local school system levels--present achievement and future plans; demographic data for the State, local school systems, and schools; assessment data on ability and achievement summarized at the State and school system levels; and assessment data on ability and achievement for each Maryland public school with Grades 3, 5, 7, and 9. Iowa Tests of Basic Skills were used to assess achievement, and Cognitive Ability Tests were used to assess ability. Results showed that Maryland's average performance on most of the achievement areas was slightly below the national average; however, Maryland's average performance in the ability area showed a progressive increase through the grades.
