AAP English 1995: A Summary Report of the Fourth Survey. Assessment of Achievement Programme.
Scottish Council for Research in Education, Edinburgh.; Scottish Office Education and Industry Dept., Edinburgh.
This summary report presents the main findings of the fourth Assessment of Achievement Programme (AAP) survey of English (involving a random sample of approximately 6,000 pupils in Scotland) and highlights teaching issues. After an introduction that discusses the survey, sampling methods, assessment framework and materials, and performance levels, the report presents results on listening, talking, reading, and writing achievement of pupils at the P4, P7, and S2 educational levels as well as teaching issues (in the form of questions relating to the way reading, writing, listening, and talking are taught). The report then presents survey results based on information from schools regarding resources, learning support, primary/secondary liaison, assessment approaches, organization of teaching, priority aspects of teaching reading and writing, homework, and computers. The report concludes with performance comparisons: overall performance, performance over time, performance between stages, links with "5-14 attainment targets," and gender performance. (Contains two tables of data.) (RS)
