This document contains preliminary state-level results for the 2000-2001 North Carolina state testing program. No conclusions about achievement are drawn in this report, although percentages achieving at given Achievement Levels are given for the end-of-grade tests. The Grade 3 Pretest is a multiple-choice reading and mathematics test administered to students in the first 3 weeks of grade 3. This pretest was given to more than 102,000 students in the 2000-2001 school year. The End-of-Grade tests were developed in alignment with the North Carolina Standard Course of Study. These state-normed tests were administered to students in grades 3 through 8 at the end of the school year. The smallest class participating, grade 8, contained approximately 97,000 students. The North Carolina High School Comprehensive Test in reading and mathematics, administered to students in grade 10, was given to more than 80,490 students. Percentages of students at different achievement levels are given. End-of-course tests have been developed for five high school core courses (Algebra; Biology; Economic, Legal, and Political Systems; English I; and U.S. History), and more than 280,000 students took these tests. Optional tests have been developed for other subjects, and tables present results for each of the tests. (Contains 23 tables and 6 figures.) (SLD)
