Profiles of Performance in the Wichita Public Schools, 1980-1981.
Dobrinski, Virginia; Liechti, Carroll D.
The performance of pupils, individual schools, and the Wichita Public School System is depicted in a quantitative report of the results of the Iowa Tests of Basic Skills (ITBS) administered as part of the system's basic testing program. The ITBS battery measured vocabulary, reading, language, work-study and mathematics skills and results are given by grade within each school and the school system. Adjacent school and system data include enrollment, average attendance percentages, the number of regular classroom teaching positions and the teacher/pupil ratios. Test results for grades 3, 4, 5, 6, and 9 are presented in grade equivalent scores, percentile ranks and quartile points of score distributions. The ITBS results also indicate how the students compare in a specific area across grade and national results. The performance profiles indicate pupils' strengths and weaknesses and are used to help determine individual and group development programs. (CM)
