State Student Assessment Programs Database, June 1995.
Bond, Linda Ann; And Others
This document tabulates extensive and detailed information about the assessment programs of each state. It is the third edition of the database and remains the single best source for information about the student assessments that states conduct. The database is compiled from a survey completed by state directors of assessment. The first section of the report contains the survey itself, followed by a summary table providing a quick look at the types of assessments conducted, the grades of subjects tested, the purpose of the assessment, and the consequences to the school. A list of names and addresses of state testing directors is followed by survey responses. Responses for the section on general concerns describing the programs are given in narrative form alphabetically by state. For the sections on nontraditional assessment and writing samples most data is in table form, although some narratives are included. A similar blend of tabular and narrative data is used for information on curriculum frameworks, high school graduation testing, and program components. (Contains 89 tables.) (SLD)
