C.T.B.S. Testing. Spring 1982 District Report, 5, 8, and 11.
Each spring the Comprehensive Tests of Basic Skills (CTBS) are administered to grades 5, 8, and 11 throughout New Mexico as part of the State Department of Education mandated assessment program. This report contains information regarding Albuquerque Public Schools' results on the 1982 CTBS. A new form of the CTBS was selected for testing fifth and eighth grade students. It includes ten subtests: vocabulary, reading comprehension, language mechanics, language expression, math computation, math concepts and applications, spelling, reference skills, science, and social studies. The new test (Form U) reflects nationwide curriculum trends of the 1980's and is not directly comparable to the CTBS, Form S which 11th grade students used. The following data are reported: average percentile scores for each grade for each subtest; the percentage-correct scores for each grade for each skill measured, in comparison with the national norm group; the number and percent of students in each percentile range; and the percent of students below average, and above average, by school.
