1991 Report Card: The State of School Systems in North Carolina.
North Carolina State Board of Education, Raleigh.
This document is the second annual report to North Carolina educators, policy makers, and the public on the performance of each of the state's local public school systems primarily in terms of outcomes of education based on student achievement. Information in the Report Card makes it possible to compare: (1) current levels of performance with those of previous years; (2) one school system in relation to others; (3) a school system and similar systems; and (4) performance in relation to standards established by the state for all systems. Information on each system is outlined in five sections. The first two sections, on School System Characteristics and Community Characteristics, summarize the context in which the system operates. The next two sections display information related to student achievement on a variety of measures; i.e., the Student Performance section gives test results for nationally normed tests and those developed specifically for North Carolina, and the Achievement section summarizes test scores for overall comparisons. Finally, the State Accreditation Status section presents the system's actual performance in relation to state accreditation standards for 1990-91. A page of notes provides information to help interpret the tables. (SLD)
