Kansas State Dept. of Education, Topeka.
This document reports the results of the Kansas Assessment Program for reading and mathematics for 1999. The mathematics assessment is given in grades 4, 7, and 10. Over 30% of the 4th graders met the individual student standard for excellence in mathematics, with 8% of 7th graders and only 4% of 10th graders meeting the standard. Five-year trend data show sizable gains on all three subscales and the total power score in mathematics at grade 4, with more modest gains at grades 7 and 10. In reading, almost 39% of the grade 3 general education/gifted students taking the assessment met the individual student standard of excellence, and at grades 7 and 10, over 26% and 19% of students respectively met the standard of excellence. Data are presented in table form for the individual grades and different subgroups of students. Three appendixes contain building frequency distributions, a description of the assessments, and some example items. (Contains 46 tables.) (SLD)
