Austin Independent School District Achievement Profiles, 1980-81. Volume III: Junior High Schools (Iowa Tests of Basic Skills) and Senior High Schools (Sequential Tests of Educational Progress).
Austin Independent School District, TX. Office of Research and Evaluation.
Austin's results are presented for the Iowa Tests of Basic Skills (ITBS) for grades 7-8 and the Sequential Tests of Educational Progress (STEP) for grades 9-12 for 1980-81. Results are presented for each campus as well as for the district. School and district characteristics accompany these results to describe the general context in which these achievement scores were collected. The ITBS measures achievement in reading, language, work-study skills, and mathematics. The STEP is a battery of achievement tests designed to measure student skills in the areas of reading, English expression, mathematics computation and basic concepts, and social studies. Special education students were exempt from the testing, and limited-English-proficient students were excused based on the teacher's judgment. Summaries of the results of the ITBS for students in each junior high school and of STEP for students in each senior high school are given. Achievement summaries are presented separately by grade, for the total group. Summaries for three ethnic groups are reported. All test results are reported by the median, first quartile, and third-quartile scores. These scores are reported as "percentile ranks", based upon a nationwide sample of students at each grade level. (Author/GK)
