Report of Student Performance on the North Carolina Competency Standard. Reporting on the Classes of 1998-2005.
North Carolina State Dept. of Public Instruction, Raleigh. Div. of Accountability.
The purpose of this document is to report the performance of students in the classes of 1998 to 1005 on the more rigorous competency standard in North Carolina as of the 2000-2001 school year. This report contains aggregate and disaggregated state-level results from administrations of the North Carolina competency tests of reading and mathematics in 2000-2001. The report also provides limited information about the performance of school districts and charter schools. Additional data are included in this year's report regarding the performance of students with disabilities, students identified as limited English proficient, and students in Title I schools. Data to compile the report were provided by local education agencies from the Student Information Management System data files. The percentage of students passing the competency standard increases with each grade, although the number of students in membership decreases as the students pass through the grades. Seventy-six percent of 8th graders passed the standard in the 2000-2001 school year, while 77% of 9th graders, 88% of 10th graders, 91% of 11th graders, and 94% of 12th graders met the requirement. There were fewer discrepancies in percent passing by ethnicity at grade 12, with better than 80% of all groups passing. At the end of grade 8, however, students in the Black, Hispanic, and American Indian categories pass at a lower rate than students in the White, Asian, and Multiracial categories. (Contains 18 figures and 17 tables.) (SLD)
