Student Performance in Reading Comprehension, Grade 3, Reading and Writing, Grade 4, and Reading and Writing, Grade 7, Spring 1999. Colorado Student Assessment Program. Annual Report to the Colorado Assembly.
Colorado State Dept. of Education, Denver.
This report provides policymakers, educators, parents, and the community with a general accounting and a concise overview of the performance of Colorado's third, fourth, and seventh grade students relative to the State Model Content Standards in third grade Reading Comprehension, fourth grade Reading and Writing, and seventh grade Reading and Writing. The report should raise awareness of the status of public education in Colorado as the public schools continue in their efforts to implement standards-based education reform statewide. These assessments should contribute to the evaluative process of assessing the strengths and gaps in Colorado public education in these content areas, and provide information for planning and improving instruction and delivery of educational services. The report is presented in five parts: Part 1 summarizes student performance in third grade Reading Comprehension; Part 2 summarizes student performance in fourth grade Reading; Part 3 summarizes student performance in fourth grade Writing; Part 4 summarizes student performance in seventh grade Reading; and Part 5 summarizes student performance in seventh grade Writing. Appendixes contain the Colorado Student Assessment Program Performance Level Descriptors for grade 3 reading, grade 4 reading, and grade 4 writing. (Contains 45 tables and 5 figures.) (NKA)
