Comprehensive Basic Skills Program Review.
New Jersey State Dept. of Education, Trenton. Div. of Operations, Research, and Evaluation.
The Comprehensive Basic Skills Program Review (CBSPR) is an essential part of the New Jersey public school evaluation and improvement process. This group of handbooks describes a process for analyzing existing school programs and practices in relation to those factors which have been identified through research to be associated with successful achievement in basic skills. Districts have the responsibility to use the results of the CBSPR to develop and implement basic skills improvement plans which appropriately fit their needs and resources. A school is selected to undergo a CBSPR if: (1) less than 65 percent of its students have met the statewide minimum standards on the Minimum Basic Skills (MBS) test in either reading, computation, or both; (2) there has not been a significantly increasing trend in the percent of students meeting the statewide standard; or (3) acceptable other evidence of pupil achievement has not been submitted by the district. Four groups involved in the CBSPR include the comprehensive review team, the local review team, the county office, and the school administrators and staff. The CBSPR handbooks deal specifically with each group's role and responsibilities, and provide guidelines for implementation at elementary and secondary levels. (RL)
