Alaska Statewide Assessment 1989 Survey. [machine-readable data file]
Silverman, Bob; And Others
This dataset contains information collected by the 1989 Alaska Statewide Assessment Survey. The respondents of the survey were students in grade 4, 6, and 8 across the state, their teachers, and school principals. A total of 23,436 cases, representing more than 95% of the eligible students, are included in the dataset. The tape contains five sections of variables: (1) teachers' description of students' social background (age, sex, race or ethnicity), native language, and participation in special educational programs (e.g., Chapter I programs, correspondence study, migrant student programs, and bilingual programs); (2) students' self-report on their academic attitudes (liking specific subjects and courses) and study habits (hours spent on specific courses, learning strategies, and special needs); (3) principals' evaluation of school organization, climate, and leadership philosophy; (4) students' test performance on Iowa Tests of Basic Skills (itemized by specific subjects at each grade level); and (5) school district characteristics derived from the 1988-1989 state report (e.g., pupil/teacher ratio, cost per pupil, and governance type). A group of scales that were manipulated from the raw measures are included in the dataset. The dataset represents the result of the first undertaking in Alaska that used a nationally normed test instrument to conduct statewide assessment. (GGH)
