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 to teachers and presents a guide to interpreting test results. Section 1 introduces the testing program, which tests students in English language arts and mathematics at grades 3, 5, 8, and 10. Sections 2 and 3 contain information on the Language Arts Report and the Mathematics Report, respectively. This information includes state norms and performance levels, the rank of the teacher's classroom and comparisons of scores for the classroom, school, and state. Comments on instructional needs are provided, along with materials for parent-teacher conferences about the reports. (SLD)
