Mangino, Evangelina; And Others
Results from the various student testing programs of the Austin (Texas) Independent School District (AISD) are summarized for 1991-92. Some 23,000 students in grades 3, 5, 7, 9, and 11 took the criterion-referenced Texas Assessment of Academic Skills (TAAS) in October of 1991. The Texas Educational Assessment of Minimum Skills (TEAMS), required for graduation, was taken by 151 students in grades 11 and 12 in October of 1991 and/or April of 1992. The norm-referenced Iowa Tests of Basic Skills (ITBS) were taken by 10,313 students in grades 1 and 2, while 42,765 students in grades 3 through 11 took the Norm-Referenced Assessment Program for Texas (NAPT) in April of 1992. Students from the AISD continued to excel on college entrance examinations, with Scholastic Aptitude Test scores averaging above those of the state and the nation. AISD students scored near state averages and above the urban average on the TAAS. AISD students ranked first among urban districts for scores on the TEAMS and TAAS. AISD students also scored higher than state averages on the NAPT. In general, African American and Hispanic American student achievement continued the trend of improving at a faster rate than that of all other students on the ITBS and the NAPT. Budget implications are discussed. Included are 31 figures of summary data, and 9 attachments with additional data on test results and technical information. (SLD)
