English II Writing Test Results, 1998-99. Measuring Up. E&R Report No. 99.29.
Dulaney, Chuck; Fejoku, Caroline
Every year the state of North Carolina requires an English II writing test as part of the End of Course examinations. The purposes of the English II tests are to assess students' mastery of writing, application of grammatical skills, and achievement in literary analysis. This report contains information about the test performance of students in the Wake County Public Schools (WCPSS). The percentage of English II scores of 3.0 or higher for WCPSS students rose to 69.1% in 1998-99. This is much higher than the 1997-98 scores, and 4.8 percentage points above the statewide average of 57.7%. Three figures contain the writing examination prompts, the results for each school, and results for Wake County and other state school districts. (SLD)
