Basic Data Tables (School Year 1975-1976). Companion Volume to Follow Through Pupil Achievement Characteristics, 1971-1972 through 1975-1976. Report No. 77121.
Philadelphia School District, PA. Office of Research and Evaluation.
This volume contains basic data tables for the analyses of 1975-1976 results reported in Follow Through Pupil Achievement Characteristics in Philadelphia 1971-1972 through 1975-1976. (The basic data tables for the analyses of 1971-1972 through 1974-1975 were published previously.) In addition to providing the data base for the above report, the tables allow the computation of inferential statistics outside the design of the local evaluation effort. In most statistical inferences based on test data, two sources of error must be considered: the error associated with the test and the error associated with sampling procedures. The analyses reported in the aforementioned volume have examined mean differences in terms of the first source of error and not the second. The population of concern is the local population of students in Philadelphia. Data are available for the direct computation of the population values for any tests. In the second section, comparison matrices are provided for all subtest areas at each grade level. In these, each Follow Through, Non-Follow Through, and Total District grouping and aggregate is compared with every other one. The comparison is whether the means differ significantly. Significance is determined in terms of measurement error, as outlined above. (Author/MV)
