Gifted Student Testing in Achievement and Cognitive Abilities, District Report for 1982 and 1983.
This report provides Albuquerque Public School Administrative personnel with 1982-83 test result summaries for gifted students in grades 1 through 12 on the Scott Foresman Achievement Series tests and the Developing Cognitive Abilities (D-CAT) test. These results are the first complete set of pre- and posttest data obtained on gifted students over a full instructional year. These data are intended to reflect student progress in academic content areas; overall verbal, quantitative and spatial areas of the D-CAT; and the performance changes in the hierarchy of thinking skills also measured by the D-CAT. Table one contains average pretest and posttest achievement test data across the various academic content levels reported by equal interval scores for each grade. Actual and expected score changes are also reported. Tables two and three present achievement data summaries by grade in national percentile scores for 1982 and 1983 on the Scott Foresman Achievement Battery. Tables four and five contain the national percentile rankings by grade on the verbal, quantitative and spatial areas of the D-CAT. A percentage of each grades' average percent of items correct in five domains of Bloom's Taxonomy of Cognitive Development is presented along with the average percent of the national norming population.
