End-of-Grade Multiple Choice Test Results, 1998-99. Measuring Up. E&R Report No. 99.30.
Students in grades 3 through 8 of the Wake County Public School System (WCPSS) took the North Carolina End-of-Grade (EOG) multiple choice tests during May and June 1999. All EOG tests are designed to measure student achievement of knowledge and skills of the North Carolina standard course of study. The multiple choice tests are required in reading and mathematics and are optional in social studies and science. This report describes results for WCPSS students on the reading and mathematics tests. The percentage of WCPSS students meeting of exceeding grade level standards in reading and mathematics at all six grade levels was higher than every before. Average scale scores also reached new highs in most grade levels, with only very small declines in reading at grades 4 and 5. Attachments contain results for the individual schools for each grade level. (SLD)
