Alexander, Cordelia R.; And Others
The 1981-82 System-Wide Testing Program (SWT) introduced the initial administrations of the Assessment of Baseline Curriculum Survey and the Language assessment scales. The Basic Objectives Assessment Tests, the Texas Assessment of Basic Skills, and District-adopted, norm-referenced tests were continued as implemented in previous years. The purposes of SWT are to provide information in support of the instructional program for identifying student needs, making curricular changes, monitoring student learning, and communicating student needs and successes to the community. This interpretive analysis documents and summarizes the major components of test implementation in the Dallas Independent School District. (PN)
