New Hampshire Educational Assessment Report, End-of-Grade 3.
New Hampshire State Dept. of Education, Concord.
This report, second in a series, contains school and district level data on student performance at the end of the primary grades. It provides a source of information to evaluate current school improvement efforts and facilitate decisions about curriculum, instruction, professional development, resource allocation, and staffing. The statewide assessment New Hampshire uses to evaluate its third-grade students employs a mix of multiple-choice and open-ended items to assess students' knowledge and their ability to apply that knowledge. Nearly all of the state's 16,055 third graders took the examinations in language arts and mathematics; very few were excluded for language difficulties or learning disabilities. The summaries of results include information on the numbers and percentages of students at each proficiency level, the performance of students in subgroups of interest, and other information districts can use to compare the performance of their students to that of other districts. Information is summarized for the whole state for language arts and mathematics, and for each of the state's districts. (Contains three tables.) (SLD)
