Manitoba Social Studies Assessment Program 1984. Preliminary Report. Grade 9 Test Data.
North Carolina Governor's Office, Raleigh.
The Social Studies Assessment Program was a province-wide assessment of Social Studies concepts, skills, and attitudes in grades 3, 6, 9, and 12 in Manitoba (Canada) carried out during April, 1984. Designed to provide a profile of student performance on program objectives, the test was administered to a representative sample of students at each grade level. Teachers were given the option of testing additional students. This preliminary report contains the basic results of grade 9 student performance on each test item as well as summary data on subtests where applicable. Its purpose is to provide information for use by classroom teachers in forming judgments about the instructional program. All reported data is based on the provincial sample as a whole, but teachers are encouraged to compare those results to the results of their own students. Each test question is reproduced with the percentage of student sample selecting each option. There are no correct answers for questions in the Value/Attitudes and Social Participation sections. Since questions in the Knowledge and the Thinking and Research categories have correct answers, subtest summaries are reported in mean raw and mean percentage scores. (BS)
