Mathematics Program Analysis of Grade 6, Stanford Achievement Test, Intermediate Level II. Fall 1984 Administration.
Hawaii State Dept. of Education, Honolulu. Office of Instructional Services.
The Stanford Achievement Test (SAT), Intermediate Level II, was administered to 11,077 sixth grade students during fall 1984. This two-section report presents findings of the SAT's three mathematics subtests. These subtests measured competency related to: (1) mathematics concepts (number, notation, operations, and geometry/measurement), (2) computation, and (3) applications (story-problem items involving use of proportions, measurement, cost estimation, fractions, graphs, tables, and map reading). Section I, an overview, discusses the purpose of the test, the background of the test administration, and the approach for program analysis; a general summmary of performance is included. Section II provides an overall analysis and an analysis of each subtest relative to task requirement, student performance in Hawaii compared to national performance, implications, and recommendations. Grade 6 SAT item matches (SAT objective correlated with learner objective or performance expectation) and other supporting documentation are included in appendices. The statewide summary of group stanine results indicates that sixth grade students in Hawaii performed better than the national average norm population with 80 percent scoring in the average and above average ranges. This is 3 percent higher than the national norm of 77 percent. (JN)
