1982-83 Test Scores and Selected School Characteristics: Elementary Schools.
Chicago Board of Education, IL.
In the spring of 1983, Chicago elementary school students, grades 1-8, were administered the Iowa Tests of Basic Skills (ITBS), Form 7. Students in grades six and eight were also given tests in science, social studies, and language skills. This report on the new testing program consists of an overview of citywide test results, district summaries, and individual school reports. 1982 results, adjusted to reflect new norms, are given to show comparisons of IBTS scores for 1982 and 1983. The overview contains ITBS score comparisons of Chicago and national test results, using 1983 baseline data by grade. Test scores and school characteristic data are given for each of the 20 administrative districts and for each school. School characteristics include school type, total budget allocation, number of teachers, school membership, student attendance rate, percentage of low-income students, percentage of limited-English-proficient students, student racial/ethnic composition, and special programs. The new testing program provides more comprehensive information on the total student population. 1983 median scores for reading and mathematics at almost all grade levels are closer to national norms than previous results. Appendix includes a glossary of terms and an alphabetical listing of schools. (BS)
