Florida Statewide Assessment Program: School Predicted Scores, 1975-76. Statistical Report Series No. 77-07.
Florida State Dept. of Education, Tallahassee. Div. of Public Schools.
The Statewide Assessment Program of the Florida State Department of Education is responsible for measuring student achievement and disseminating the assessment results. One dimension of this effort has been the development of predicted or adjusted school scores. These scores are based on several factors which are related to achievement. Among these achievement factors, also known as predictor variables, are Spanish native language, family income level, white collar occupation, college education and minority enrollment. The predictor variables used in calculating the 1975-76 scores were collected on a school basis and are expressed as percentages for the school. The district averages listed on the tables are weighted averages based on the population of each school. Predicted test scores were calculated for each school participating in the 1975-76 assessment of communication skills and mathematics in grades 3 and 6. This document contains the predicted test scores for all schools and districts, as well as the observed scores. A glossary of major terms is appended. (Author/MV)
