California Achievement Test Results. Grades 1-6. 1981-1982. Tech Memo.
Mesa Public Schools, AZ. Dept. of Research and Evaluation.
The California Achievement Test was administered to the students of the Mesa Public Schools in April, 1981, and again in April, 1982. This state-mandated test is administered to all students in grades 1 through 12. Although this report is directed toward the performance of Mesa students at the elementary level, a general overview of the performance of all Mesa students is included. Information is presented in terms of grade equivalence scores, percentile rankings, stanines, and scale scores. Norm values are also presented. Mesa's performance, considering scale scores, is well above that of the national sample in all areas (i.e., reading, grammar, and mathematics) and at all grade levels. Overall performance summed over grades indicates the students are doing extremely well in all curriculum areas, but a little better in math, with grammar a close second and reading somewhat below the other two areas. Using a comparison between the school mean and the national norm mean for schools and a comparison between school performance in 1981 and school performance in 1982, a number of schools indicated excellent performance on both criteria. An attempt was made to identify those schools that did not fit into these categories. (PN)
