Districtwide Testing Results by District and by School: Grades 5, 7 and 9. Evaluation Services Department Report No. 355.
San Diego City Schools, CA. Evaluation Services Dept.
The Comprehensive Tests of Basic Skills (CTBS), Form U were administered to all students in Grades 5, 7, and 9 in the San Diego City Schools during the last two weeks of April, 1983. This report is intended to respond to two primary questions: (1) how are San Diego elementary and junior high students doing relative to the national norm group, and (2) how does districtwide CTBS achievement for Spring 1983 compare to the previous year? Most district median percentile values were at or above the 50th percentile. Twenty of the thirty subtests had medians above the 50th percentile, another nine subtests had medians which equaled or closely approximated the national norm, and only one subtest had a median well below average (Grade 9 Spelling, 46th percentile). The Math Computation subtest scores for Grades 5, 7 and 9 were consistently exceptionally high--with nearly two-thirds of the students scoring at or above the national average. Compared with Spring 1982 results, 1983 median percentile scores have increased or remained stable in 19 of 20 instances. Only the Grade 5 Reading Comprehension median percentile value declined. Language subtests demonstrated very substantial gains in both Grades 5 and 7. (Author/BW)
