Seven criteria for selecting and describing the standardization sample of the Metropolitan Achievement Test (MAT), 1978 edition are discussed. Four major variables were used to describe the sample: socioeconomic status; school district enrollment; public vs. nonpublic; and geographic region. Both forms and all grade levels of the Survey Battery and the Reading, Mathematics and Language Instructional Tests were standardized in October 1977 and April May 1978. Tables describe: scores on the Otis-Lennon School Ability Test, administered with the fall MAT; percentage of special students; and variables of the sample relative to national norms. The 218 school districts who participated are listed. (RL)
