Using Eighth Grade Georgia Criterion-Referenced Competency Tests to Predict Student Achievement on the Georgia End of Course Tests
Darnell, Janice Marie
ProQuest LLC, Ed.D. Dissertation, Liberty University
The purpose of this correlational study was to examine Georgia's Criterion-Referenced Competency Test (CRCT) scores of 8th grade students and End of Course Test (EOCT) scores of the same students as 9th graders in the areas of language arts and mathematics to test the theory that a relationship exists between the two tests. The study also examined the 8th grade CRCT scores as being predictors of the 9th grade EOCT scores. Three cycles, or classes, of 8th grade CRCT scores and corresponding EOCT scores were used. The study used data from a small semi-rural school district in northeast Georgia. The findings indicate that there is a strong relationship between the 8th grade CRCTs and the 9th grade EOCTs. Further, the CRCTs may be used as a predictor for the EOCT. [The dissertation citations contained here are published with the permission of ProQuest LLC.
