Holmes, Mark
Statistical data and comments describe the results of the 1977 eighth grade testing program in Ontario, Canada. The tests were: Mathematics (in French and English), Problem Solving (in French and English); Science (in English only), Attitudes, French Comprehension, and Written English. Table 1 presents the numbers of students, by school district, taking each test. Tables 2 through 7 show the percent of students attaining the three achievement levels of competence, honors, and high honors, for each examination. Table 8 gives summary statistics for all tests except Written English. Table 9 presents correlations among tests and with sex, intelligence quotient, school attendance, and social status. Table 10 presents the same information for the test in Written English. Table 11 gives correlations for total and sub-scores in mathematics and problem solving. Comments include speculations about possible causes for the results, and suggestions for policy based on the results. (CTM)
