Results of the Georgia Statewide Testing Program for the Atlanta Public Schools, 1981.
The Georgia Criterion Referenced Tests (GCRT), tests of basic skills, administered to Georgia students in grades four, eight, and ten measure competency in reading and mathematics. Results are reported for students in Atlanta and throughout the state. The reading and mathematics objectives were organized into skill areas. Atlanta students scored considerably lower than students throughout Georgia on all objectives and at all grade levels tested. However, Atlanta students showed gains which surpassed those made by students statewide. The gains in mathematics were greater than the gains in reading. Reading performance exceeded mathematics performance for all Georgia students. Minimum passing scores had not been determined at the time of this study. From the results of this administration, it can be expected that a larger proportion of Atlanta students will be affected by minimum passing scores than other students statewide. (DWH)
