The California Assessment Program (CAP) presents the Survey of Basic Skills report for grades 3 and 6 of an Alameda County elementary school for 1982. This report begins with an overview of school and district achievement and progresses to more detailed information related to performance in specific skill areas and scores for different groups of students. The report also includes interpretive materials. The "Content Area Summary" includes the following information: school and district scaled scores for 1982 and two previous years, comparison score bands for schools and districts, a summary of background factors, and pupil score distribution. "Program Diagnostic Displays" provide information about performance in the skill areas that are tested in reading, written language, and mathematics. The last section of the Display contains responses to attitudinal questions; students were asked to indicate how much they like reading, writing stories, and mathematics. "Student Subgroup Results" provide scores for different groups of students according to sex, mobility, socioeconomic status, English language fluency, and specially funded programs. "Using Survey Results" suggests a procedure for using CAP results. Included also are descriptions of the skill areas tested.
