A Report on the Results of the CTB-Mathematics Test (CTB-M) Administration in New York City.
New York City Board of Education, Brooklyn. Div. of Assessment and Accountability.
This paper presents results from the 2000 administration of the Citywide Mathematics Tests (CTB-M) for New York City public school students in grades 3, 5, 6, and 7, comparing data with results from the 1999 CTB-M. Overall, schools made progress in lifting students out of level 1 (the lowest proficiency level). Over 7,000 fewer students scored in level 1 in 2000 than in 1999. The largest decrease in students scoring in level 1 was achieved by schools in the Chancellor's district. Modest improvement was shown in the percentage of students meeting or exceeding the new, rigorous mathematics standards in 2000, with over 5,000 students meeting or exceeding all standards for their grade level between 1999-00. Longitudinal analysis of mathematics scores showed that students who were held over in grade made extremely large gains in mean scale scores; more than 1 year's growth in achievement. Students in Schools Under Registration Review showed improvement on the CTB-M, with the percentage scoring in level 1 decreasing by 6.3 percentage points. Scores also improved for English language learners (ELLs) and former ELLs who were now in mainstream classes. (SM)
