Delaware State Dept. of Education, Dover. Assessment and Accountability Branch.
This report is intended to help parents understand the Delaware Student Testing Program (DSTP) and the reports generated by the testing program. In spring 1998, the Department of Education, in conjunction with Harcourt Educational Measurement, began its annual administration of the DSTP reading, writing, and mathematics tests for students in grades 3, 5, 8, and 10 to provide an accurate measure of how students are doing relative to Delaware's rigorous content standards. In spring 200 the science and social studies tests were administered in grades 8 and 11, and a version of these tests designed for grades 4 and 6 were administered in fall 2000. This guide contains the following sections: (1) "Introduction to the DSTP"; (2) "Understanding the English Language Arts Report"; (3)"Understanding the Mathematics Report"; (4) "Understanding the Science and Social Studies Report"; and (5) "Suggestions on How To Help Students Do Better in School." An appendix contains sample reports. (SLD)
