Austin's results on the Iowa Tests of Basic Skills (ITBS) for grades 1-6 for 1980-81 are presented for each campus as well as for the district. These results are accompanied by school and district characteristics, so as to describe the general context in which the achievement scores were collected. Grades 3-6 were tested on four sections of the ITBS; grades 1 and 2 were tested on five sections. The sections include reading, language, work-study, math, and word analysis. Scores from special education students and students classified as monolingual or dominant in a language other than English are excluded. All test results are reported by the median score, and by the first and third quartile scores. Scores are reported as percentile ranks, based upon a nationwide sample of students at each grade level. There are separate pages of achievement profiles for the ITBS in reading (grades 1-6), language (grades 3-6), work-study (grades 3-6), and math (grades 1-6). Summaries for spelling and word analysis at grades 1 and 2 are combined. Achievement summaries are provided for the total group and each of the following: Anglo/other, Hispanic, Black. (Author/GK)
