Rhode Island Public Schools Education Indicators, 1990.
Cooper, Karen; And Others
This report, fourth in an annual series, presents information about the status of public schools in Rhode Island. Three types of indicators are provided: (1) education outcomes; (2) community context; and (3) policies and practices. Education outcomes include results of student testing on the Metropolitan Achievement Test and other measures of student success. Outcome information is also given across multiple years to document educational trends. Community context indicators include demographic, enrollment, and financial resource information about a community that serve as a framework for reviewing the outcomes of education. Indicators on policies and practices cover programs, organization, regulations, and budgets in operation. These factors reflect decisions administrators and policymakers have made; these can be altered if necessary. Indicators are presented in six bar graphs and three tables each for the state as a whole and for Rhode Island's 37 school districts. (SLD)
