Elementary School Achievement Profiles. A School-by-School Report of Basic Skills, Test Results, and School/Student/Staff Data. School Year 1983-94.
Portland Public Schools, OR. Dept. of Research, Evaluation, and Testing.
This report presents the 1983-84 summary achievement profiles of the 82 Portland, Oregon, elementary schools for use by school staffs, administrators, and the community for planning, goal setting, and evaluation. The profiles contain Portland Achievement Level Tests results plus data on the physical facility, school personnel, student enrollment, student attendance and stability, and special program participation. The Portland Achievement Level Tests of reading, language usage, and math are administered each fall and spring to students in grades 3 through 8. The tests are based on the Portland Public Schools' basic skills curriculum, and administered according to student performance level rather than by grade level. Results are reported by two types of graphs: (1) distributions of grade and composite P-scores (standard scores indicating achievement level as compared with other Portland students in the same grade); and (2) fall to spring achievement (by Rasch Unit Scores) gains for reading, language usage, and math for each grade as compared with district norms from the 1980-81 baseline year.
