A Report on the Matches between the South Dakota Standards in Mathematics and Selected Stanford Achievement Tests.
Kendall, John S.
This report presents an analysis of the alignment between the grade level standards of the "South Dakota Standards in Mathematics" (December 1998) and test items from the Stanford Achievement Tests, Ninth Edition (Stanford 9). The tests of interest were: (1) Form S, Primary 2 (grade 2); (2) Form S, Intermediate 1 (grade 4); (3) Form S, Advanced 2 (grade 8); and Form S, Task 3 (grade 11). Two research analysts independently identified matches between the Stanford 9 test items for mathematics and the student knowledge and skills identified in the South Dakota standards. In every case, analysts, after discussion, were able to agree on the most appropriate matches for each test item. Once all test items were matched to the appropriate grade level standards, analysts were able to characterize how such grade level standards were assessed overall by the Stanford 9. Appendix A contains matches of test items with grade level standards. The test item matching is also presented in graph format in Appendix B. (Contains 35 figures and 2 tables.) (SLD)
