In 1998, the Stanford Achievement Test Series, Ninth Edition, Form TA (Stanford 9) was administered to Virginia students in grades 4, 6, and 9 as the norm-referenced component of the Virginia State Assessment Program. As in the previous year, from 93 to 96% of Virginia's students took the Stanford 9, although the first administration was taken by students in grades 3, 5, 8, and 11. In grade 4, achievement was at or above the national average in 10 of the 11 subtests and content area totals. Achievement in grade 6 was also at or above the national average in 10 of the 11 areas. Achievement of Virginia's ninth-grade students was at or above the national average in 7 of the 11 subtests and content area totals. Scaled scores are given to enable comparisons from Fall to Spring administrations. The report contains the following sections: (1) "Executive Summary"; (2) "Background and General Information"; (3) "Virginia's 1998 Performance on Stanford 9 - Grade 4"; (4) "Virginia's 1998 Performance on Stanford 9 - Grade 6"; (5) "Virginia's 1998 Performance on Stanford 9 - Grade 9"; (6) "School Division Performance"; and (7) "Statewide Performance." Six tables contain average national percentile rankings and scaled scores by gender, ethnicity, disability, and limited English proficiency and comparisons between 1997 and 1998. (SLD)
