State Report Appendix: Arizona Student Achievement Program, Spring 1997. Individual Percentile Rank Scores by School, District, County, and State, Grades 3 through 12. Stanford Achievement Test, Ninth Edition.
Arizona State Dept. of Education, Phoenix.
This is the 17th year of statewide student testing under the Arizona Student Achievement Program. To fulfill the requirements of Arizona law, a nationally standardized, norm-referenced achievement test in the subjects of reading, language, and mathematics must be adopted and implemented for Arizona schools. For the 1996-97 school year, the State Board of Education mandated testing at grades 3 through 12 with the Stanford Achievement Test, Ninth Edition (Stanford 9). This test was administered statewide to 510,849 Arizona students in the spring of 1997, subtests in reading, language, and mathematics. This state report appendix provides school, district, county, and state level scores representing typical student performance on the Stanford 9, with separate scores for each subject test. The three scores cannot be averaged to produce one overall score for a reporting entity. These scores are called individual percentile rank scores because they are developed from the distribution of individual student scores. One lengthy table is provided for each of the three subject areas. (SLD)
