Delaware Student Testing Program: A Score Results Guide for Boards and Administrators.
Delaware State Dept. of Education, Dover. Assessment and Accountability Branch.
The Delaware Student Testing Program ties student achievement to the state's content standards that define the knowledge and skills Delaware students need to succeed beyond high school. This report explains the testing program and how to interpret it for administrators and boards of education. Each school receives English language and mathematics reports for the school at grades 3, 5, 8, and 10, as appropriate. Each school district superintendent, and ultimately the school district's board of education, receives English language arts reports and mathematics reports for the tested grades. Following an introduction to the tests, section 2 discusses understanding the language arts report, with information on the grade levels, testing dates, and norms for the grades tested. School, district, and state scores are compared. Similar information in section 3 explains the mathematics report. An appendix contains sample individual, classroom, and state reports for English language arts. (SLD)
