A series of reports informs educators and parents about the Alaska Statewide Assessment, a program designed to measure student performance in mathematics and reading. The first report covers the 1981 assessment, proposed planning and changes in the program for 1983, evaluation plans, and test scores. Report 2 describes the progress of score interpretation; compares scores for sex, race, language, and geographic differences; and discusses the 1981 Scholastic Aptitude Tests. Report 3 summarizes the assessment process, the content of the tests, and statewide averages, in addition to answering commonly asked questions about the statewide assessment program. Report 4 evaluates student strengths and weaknesses as indicated in the test results. Report 5 describes educators' reactions to the program and features of the 1983 assessment, local use of test results, information provided in test results, and district testing representatives. The final report provides the results of the 1983 assessment, describes content of the 1983 tests, and answers teacher and parent questions related to uses of the scores and differences between 1981 and 1983 scores.
