Delaware Student Testing Program: Supplement Report of Student Questionnaire Survey, 2002 DSTP Administration for Grades 4 and 6 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 information from student responses at grades 4 and 6 about Opportunity to Learn, Science, and Social Studies. Student responses were analyzed by grade, gender, race, and proficiency level of a given test. Responses are reported in conjunction with those from grades 3, 5, 8, and 10. Results show that more students in lower grades talked about what they had learned in school with someone at home every day or almost every day than their peers in higher grades. Data also suggest that more high-achieving students across the grades discuss their studies at home frequently. 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 across grades 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. (SLD)
