Ten Schools Program: A Comparative Study of Student Achievement as Measured by Stanford 9 and Aprenda Norm-Referenced Achievement Tests. Publication No. 769.
The academic achievement of participants in the Ten Schools Program (TSP) of the Los Angeles Unified School District (California) was compared with that of students in similar comparison schools and African American and Hispanic students throughout the school district. The TSP is a research-based instructional program for elementary school designed to improve academic achievement in urban schools that serve low achieving, at-risk students, primarily from minority groups. Academic achievement was measured by two norm-referenced tests the Stanford 9 and Aprenda administered in spring 1997. TSP students, as a total group, demonstrated a higher level of achievement in reading, mathematics, language arts, and spelling on the basic battery and the total battery than African American and Hispanic students in the comparison schools and districtwide, as measured by the Stanford tests. TSP student scores were lower than districtwide Hispanic and African American students in study skills, environmental skills, science, social science, listening, using information, and thinking skills as measured by the Stanford 9. Aprenda results indicate that TSP Hispanic students performed close to the national average or higher and scored higher than Hispanic students in comparison schools and throughout the school district.
