Manitoba Health Assessment Program, 1982. Preliminary Report: Grade 5 & 10 Test Data.
Manitoba Dept. of Education, Winnipeg.
The health assessment program is part of the overall Manitoba student assessment program as recommended by the Joint Committee on Evaluation and approved by the Minister of Education. The purposes for conducting assessment programs are as follows: (1) to provide benchmark indicators about the level of student achievement in the Province of Manitoba; (2) to obtain data on student achievement that will assist in curriculum and program improvement at the provincial and local level; (3) to assist school divisions in student and system evaluation; and (4) to help teachers improve their student evaluation skills. The grade 5 and 10 tests were designed to assess student health knowledge, attitudes, and habits. Tests were administered to a sample of students selected from public schools throughout Manitoba. This preliminary report contains an overview of the procedures followed and a detailed presentation of the student data collected for the 1982 health assessment program. The data are presented in tabular form and are accompanied by a minimum of discussion, thereby providing student information for use by classroom teachers. The results provide an indication of student performance in a number of health concept areas. All data are reported on a provincial basis only. (Author/PN)
