Delaware Student Testing Program: Report of Student Questionnaire Survey, 2002 DSTP Administration for Grades 3, 5, 8, 10, and 11 in Reading, Writing, Mathematics, Science, and Social Studies.
Delaware State Dept. of Education, Dover. Assessment and Accountability Branch.
With the administration of the 2002 Delaware Student Testing Program (DSTP), a questionnaire was given to students in grades 3, 5, 8, and 10 about Opportunity to Learn, Reading, Writing, and Mathematics, and to all students in grades 4, 6, 8, and 11 about Opportunity to Learn, Science, and Social Studies. Students responses to the questions were analyzed by grade, gender, race, and proficiency level of a given test. This report contains findings from those analyses for grades 3,5, 8, 10, and 11. Findings, which are reported in detail for each grade and subject area, provide useful information and additional validity evidence for the connections between teaching and learning. Findings show that students in lower grades are more likely to talk about that they learned in school, and high-achieving students are most likely to report that they do talk about what they are learning. The majority of the students in all grades reported that their parents encouraged them to do their best in school. Students reported spending time on homework, with the amount increasing with age, and high-achieving students were more likely to spend more time on homework. About half the students in grades 3, 5, and 8 reported watching television 2 or more hours each day, but the percentage declined to 36% at grade 11. About 80% of students acrossgrades reported having a computer at home, and more than 90% had access to a computer at school. Findings provide other information about students and their school and home experiences. Appendixes contain five detailed data tables. (SLD)
