Geometry. Report of Student Performance. End of Course Testing, Spring 1989.
North Carolina State Dept. of Public Instruction, Div. of Accountability.
The North Carolina End-of-Course Testing Program was established to provide student, school, and school system information about achievement in high school courses. This report describes: (1) "Geometry End-of-Course Test"; (2) "Scoring Geometry Proofs"; (3) "Characteristics of Geometry Students"; (4) "Student Performance on the Core Test"; (5) "Student Performance on the Common Proof"; (6) "Combining Performance and Participation: Yield and Effective Yield"; (7) "Teacher-Assigned Grades and Scores on the Core Test and the Common Proof"; and (8) "Average Performance on the Curriculum Test." Each Geometry student took one of eight statistically equivalent 60-item tests during the final days of the school year. The average score was 37.5 or 62.6 percent correct. Performance in the core test differed by parental education, ethnic group, grade level in school, sex, and anticipated final course grade. The select group of students taking Geometry in the ninth grade had higher average scores than students at any other grade level. Performance and participation rates in educational regions and public school systems, and state percentile tables for 1989 are provided in the appendices. (YP)
