This document contains student and school system performance data on North Carolina's grade 3 pretest, end-of-grade tests, high school comprehensive test, and end-of-course tests. Results were generated from tests administered statewide in the 2000-2001 school year. The grade 3 pretest was administered in reading and mathematics, and the end-of-grade tests were given in reading and mathematics in grades 3 through 8. The high school comprehensive test measured reading and mathematics in grade 10, and the end-of-course tests were administered in high school subject areas. State- and system-level results in this document may be used to make grade-to-grade, subject-to-subject, and year-to-year comparisons. In addition to the summary statistics, the document contains disaggregated test results for subgroups for the multiple choice grade 3 pretest, the end-of-grade tests, the high school comprehensive test, and the end-of-course tests. Test results show that 71.1% of students entering third grade scores at or above Achievement Level III on the reading pretest, while 79.2% scored at or about Achievement Level III on the mathematics pretest. Data from 2000-2001 indicate that the percentage of students in grades 3 through 8 performing at Achievement Level III and above continued to grow in both reading and mathematics, from 53.0%in 1992-1993 to 71.7% in 2000-2001. The percent of students achieving at Achievement Level III or above declined slightly for the high school comprehensive test, and comparison figures across the years are not generally available for the end-of-course tests.
