Mathematics: Grades 9-12. Teaching and Testing Our Basic Skills Objectives.
South Carolina State Dept. of Education, Columbia. Office of Research.
This publication, a result of the Basic Skills Assessment Program (BSAP), is designed for use as a resource or reference guide and not as a basic skills textbook. It focuses on that part of the mathematics curriculum which is reflected in the South Carolina State Basic Skills Objectives. Information is provided not only for the grades tested by BSAP (1, 2, 3, 6, 8, and 11), but for other grades as well; however, the focus is on grades 9-12. Following an introduction, there is one section for each of the five State Mathematics Objectives: concepts, operations, measurement, geometry, and problem solving. In each, both general information which applies to all grades or particular ranges, and specific by-grade information is given. For each objective, subskills are identified, numerous instructional activities are suggested, and a general overview of the test item is provided. A skill difficulty chart is included, as are content supplements, sample test items, and directions to teachers on developing items. (MNS)
