North Carolina State Dept. of Public Instruction, Div. of Accountability.
This document provides information on average student performance at the state level on end-of-grade (grades 3 through 8 in reading and mathematics and grades 4 through 8 in social studies) multiple-choice tests and all end-of-course (high school courses) tests administered in 1994-95 as part of the North Carolina Testing Program. State-level summary statistics in this document may be used to make grade-to-grade and subject-to-subject comparisons across the years (indicating gain). Year-to-year comparisons of developmental scale scores of cohort groups can be used to measure growth as cohorts move through the grades. Information is also presented on student participation in rigorous selective high school courses and the range of scores used to determine a student's proficiency based on established standards. In addition to the summary statistics, this document contains grade and subject level achievement performance for end-of-grade tests and disaggregated information for end-of-course tests. This and associated information provide a comprehensive reference of overall and disaggregated state testing results for 1994-95. In that year, the end-of-grade tests were administered to over 519,000 students, and more than 550,000 end-of-course multiple-choice tests were administered for 10 high school courses. Student achievement in reading and mathematics continued to improve in grades 3 through 8. High school performance, judged by test scores in the seven areas for which comparisons can be made, improved in four, declined in one, and remained the same in two areas.
