Academic Achievement of Selected Elementary Students in a Culturally Diverse District, 1980-86.
This document discusses an academic achievement study of selected Garvey School District students (N=179) as reflected on the CTBS (Comprehensive Tests of Basic Skills) scores of first-grade students at elementary school sites and covering a period of 6 school years starting with 1980-81. Findings compare (1) achievement in reading scale scores and percentiles; (2) achievement in language scale scores and percentiles; and (3) achievement in math scale scores and percentiles. Analysis is provided on teachers' comments about students and on attendance information. Conclusions are described with relation to reading, language, and math skills and ethnic groups. Inconsistencies of the study are also related. The need to replicate, expand, and improve the study are recommended. Tables and line graphs are included. Appended are teacher rating and student achievement forms. (SI)
