Dulaney, Chuck; Regan, Roger
Wake County Public School System (WCPSS) students in grades 3 through 8 took the North Carolina End-of-Grade (EOG) multiple-choice tests during the months of May and June of 2002. These tests are the basis of the accountability program referred to as ABCs, Accountability, Basics, and Control. WCPSS EOG multiple-choice results for 2001-2002 show increases at all grade levels in both reading and mathematics. Both the percentage of students scoring at or above grade level and average scale scores reached new highs. The composite percentage of all grade 3 through grade 8 EOG scores at/above grade level rose from 87.5% in 2001 to 89.4% in 2002. More than 85% of students met or exceeded grade-level standards in reading and mathematics at all grade levels except for grade 6 reading. No grade level showed a decrease. Four appendixes contain scores by student characteristics, and by school. (Contains 20 figures and 7 tables.) (SLD)
