Anchor Test Study. Fifth-Grade Reading Achievement as a Function of Selected School, Classroom, and Pupil Variables. Tabular Reports Series.
Scores on the Total Reading scale of the Metropolitan Achievement Tests (MAT) were obtained for a nationally representative sample of 65,399 fifth grade pupils in the course of the 1972 National Center for Education Statistics (NCES) Anchor Test Study. Based upon these data, this report presents a series of preliminary tabulations relating grade five reading achievement to 10 school, classroom, and pupil variables. For pupil subgroups defined in terms of the categories and category combinations of up to three of these variables at a time, the tabulations include several descriptive indexes of average level of reading achievement. In the interest of providing major study findings as soon as possible, this preliminary, tabular report contains only raw tabulations and technical/background information. Additional reports to be published later will contain a more complete presentation and assessment of the study findings. (Author/RC)
