Mangino, Evangelina; And Others
Results are summarized for the Austin, Texas, Independent School District (AISD) achievement testing program during the 1984-85 year. The data are presented to compare AISD results to national and urban averages. The performance of AISD students on other tests is presented, as well as two-year and six-year trends. Both percentile and grade equivalent scores are provided for Black, Hispanic, Other, and Total student groups. Major findings include: (1) AISD students consistently achieved above the national average in grades 1-12 in all areas--language, reading, written expression, using information sources, mathematics, science, social studies, and work and study skills; (2) achievement trends are upward at all grade levels for the last two years; (3) minority student achievement increased at a greater rate than nonminorities; (4) AISD students achieved higher than two-thirds to three-fourths of the national urban average; and (5) kindergarten students progressed over nine months in language skills during a seven-month period. Further needs are identified concerning seventh and eighth grade achievement and elementary school mathematics. (GDC)
