Texas Assessment of Academic Skills and TEAMS Exit Level. Student Performance Results, 1991-1992. Volume 1. Statewide and Regional Results.
Texas Education Agency, Austin.
This report presents the Texas Assessment of Academic Skills (TAAS) performance results to state officials and the public as required by state law. Compiled in two volumes, TAAS results are aggregated and reported for the state as a whole, for education service centers and individual districts, and in district demographic groupings. Section 1 provides an executive summary that highlights performance results for the 1991-92 school year. Section 2 give a TAAS program overview and provides information necessary for understanding what these test results mean for Texas education. Sections 3 through 10 summarize TAAS performance results for each grade level tested in the 1991-92 school year (grades 3, 5, 7, 9, 11, and 12). Results of a Spanish version of the test for grade 3 are also reported. Texas Educational Assessment of Minimum Skills (TEAMS) exit level results are given for grades 11 and 12. The TAAS results help show where progress has been made and where improvement is needed to achieve the goal of excellence and equity for all students. In October 1991, performance declined slightly or remained unchanged across most grades and subject areas compared with October 1990. Disparities in performance among various ethnic and economic groups continued to exist. Thirty-four figures and numerous tables illustrate test results. Ten appendixes provide additional information about the testing program and the test results, including information on standards and scoring. (SLD)
