State of the State: Education Performance in North Carolina, 1992. Revised.
North Carolina State Dept. of Public Instruction, Raleigh.
An evaluation of North Carolina's public school system is provided in this report, which uses student academic performance as a primary indicator of educational effectiveness. The first two sections describe characteristics of North Carolina and its schools, with a focus on public school population, enrollment, and funding. Section 3 focuses on student achievement and compares the performance of North Carolina students to the performance of students in other states on the Scholastic Aptitude Test, the National Assessment of Educational Progress, and the California Achievement Test. Next, 3-year trends (1989-92) in the performance of all students who participate in the statewide testing program are examined. Additionally, the performances among student subgroups are compared, with a focus on the relationship between race and achievement. Finally, student performance in a major academic area is assessed; for a number of reasons, mathematics was selected for this year's focus. (LMI)
