Results 1993. Oklahoma Educational Indicators Program. State Report.
Oklahoma State Dept. of Education, Oklahoma City.
The Oklahoma Educational Indicators Program is a system developed under the Oklahoma Education Reform Act of 1990 to assess the performance of public schools and school systems. "Results 1993" includes data for the 1992-93 school year for all categories of measurement. Applicable indicators have been compiled separately for each school site, each school district, and the entire state. Indicators include student outcomes in terms of achievement test scores, student characteristics, including graduation and dropout rates, teacher characteristics, and financial information. The student enrollment in Oklahoma schools has increased by 3.7% over 1990 to 594,338 in 1993, based on average daily membership. Teaching staff increased by 7.7% over the same period. Test scores at the state level increased in all grades for the Iowa Tests of Basic Skills and the Tests of Achievement and Proficiency. American College Test and Scholastic Aptitude Test scores generally reflect an upward turn. Financial information for 1992-93 reflects the state's new cost accounting system. Nineteen graphs present indicator information in school, district, and state categories. Three appendixes add statistical and supplemental details. (SLD)
