Measuring Educational Progress in the South: Student Achievement.
Cornett, Lynn M.; And Others
Information on the achievement of students in Southern States is presented, based on the National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP). State profiles are presented for 12 Southern Regional Education Board (SREB) states, plus Maryland and Texas. A 1984-1985 SREB pilot project with the National Assessment of Educational Progress is also outlined. The key features of the existing state student assessment programs are reviewed, based on information from the state departments of education. The profiles of the state student assessment programs cover results of state-developed criterion-referenced tests for 1982 and/or 1983, nationally-normed tests, trend data in student achievement, and high school graduation examinations results (for some states). Information is also provided on the assessment of intellectual development and career and personal development for first-time college students, continuing students, and graduating students. It is noted that the SREB pilot program provides state benchmark data as well as national comparisons on reading achievement for 11th grade students. Profiles are provided for the following states: Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maryland, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia, and West Virginia.
