Kansas State Board of Education, Topeka.
The Kansas Minimum Competency Testing Program is designed to provide the public, the Kansas State Board of Education, and the Kansas legislature with descriptive profiles of student performance relative to minimum competencies in reading and mathematics. Results of the 1982-83 assessment are presented in this report. Included are overall test summaries, information about the testing program, and three appendices (which comprise the largest portion of the report) providing state summary data for: (1) distribution of students' total scores; (2) percent of students correctly answering 1, 2, or 3 out of 3 items for each objective, with expected performance by objective indicated; and (3) the percent of students answering each item correctly. Data in these appendices are presented, separately for reading and mathematics, by grade level (grade 2, grade 4, grade 6, grade 8, and grade 11). Among the results are those showing that of the 29,173 students taking the grade 4 reading test, 67.4 percent met or exceeded the minimun standard of 45 items out of 60 possible items and that of the 32,122 students taking the grade 6 mathematics test, 61.6 percent met or exceeded the minimum standard of 45 correct items out of 60 possible items.
