Student Achievement in New York State, 1982-83.
New York State Education Dept., Albany. Div. of Educational Testing.
Analysis of the available data suggests that New York's elementary and secondary schools, taken as a whole, compiled a good record of achievement during the 1982-83 school year. Three kinds of test data were analyzed. One was the result of a study which involved the collection of scores on three commercially available standardized tests: the California Achievement Tests, the Iowa Tests of Basic Skills, and the Metropolitian Achievement Tests. This study compared New York pupils with pupils nationwide, 1973-1983. The second consisted of scores from the New York Pupil Evaluation Program, the Regents Competency Tests, and the Regents Examinations. The third was a by-product of national programs that identify outstanding pupils. These programs include the College Board Scholastic Aptitude Test, Achievement Tests, and Advanced Placement Program; the National Merit Scholarship competition; and the Westinghouse Science Talent Search. In this report, the 1982-83 results for each of these quality indicators are summarized. (BW)
