1 BTES PHASE III-B PAGE 1 FILE GR2.STUDENT: GRADE 2 READING AND MATHEMATICS STUDENT ACHIEVEMENT SCORES THIS FILE CONTAINS THE SECOND GRADE STUDENT SUBTEST SCORES IN READING AND MATHEMATICS FOR ALL FIVE PHASE III-B TEST OCCASIONS. THE FIVE TEST OCCASIONS ARE: (1) SELECTION TEST (SEPTEMBER, 1976) (2) 'A' TESTING (OCTOBER, 1976) (3) 'B' TESTING (DECEMBER, 1976) (4) 'C' TESTING (MAY, 1977) (5) 'D' FOLLOW-UP (SEPTEMBER, 1977) EACH SUBTEST IS IDENTIFIED BY ITS SUBTEST LABEL WITH A SINGLE LETTER PREFIX ADDED TO THE LABEL TO IDENTIFY THE TEST OCCASION. THE PREFIX S_ IDENTIFIES THE SELECTION SUBTEST SCORES. SIMILARLY, A_ = A TESTING, B_ = B TESTING, C_ = C TESTING, AND D_ = D TESTING. REFER TO APPENDICES A,B, AND C FOR SUBTEST DESCRIPTIONS. REFER TO THE APPROPRIATE ITEM RESPONSE FILES, E.G., GR2ABAT, ETC., FOR SUBTEST ITEM COMPOSITION. (NOTE: THERE IS NO ITEM RESPONSE FILE FOR THE SELECTION TEST. SELECTION TEST DATA ARE PROVIDED AT THIS SUBTEST SCORE LEVEL ONLY.) SUBTEST SCORES HAVE BEEN CORRECTED FOR GUESSING AND IN SOME CASES THIS WILL RESULT IN A NEGATIVE STUDENT SUBTEST SCORE. NEGATIVE SCORES WILL HAVE A MINUS SIGN IN FRONT OF THE SCORE. CORRECTION MAY ALSO PRODUCE ZERO SCORES: THAT IS, 0.00 IS A VALID SCORE. THE FORMULA USED TO WEIGH EACH MULTIPLE CHOICE ITEM (TO OBTAIN CORRECTED SCORES) WAS: CORRECT RESPONSE = 1.00 MULTIPLE OR NO RESPONSE = 0.00 INCORRECT RESPONSE = -1.00/(K-1.00)* *K = THE NUMBER OF ANSWER CHOICE OPTIONS 1 BTES PHASE III-B FILE GR2.STUDENT PAGE 2 SELECTION TEST DATA ARE INCLUDED ONLY FOR THOSE STUDENTS WHO WERE SELECTED FOR STUDY. SELECTION TEST DATA FOR THE NON-SELECTED STUDENTS AND CLASSES ARE NOT INCLUDED. THE SELECTION BATTERY SUBTESTS ARE SEPARATE AND DISTINCT FROM THE A,B,C, AND D SUBTESTS. SELECTION SUBTEST SCORES ARE THEREFORE PRESENTED SEPARATELY AS A GROUP. ALL OTHER SCORES ARE ORGANIZED BY SUBTEST RATHER THAN BY OCCASION. SCORES FOR EACH SUBTEST ARE GROUPED TOGETHER IN CHRONOLOGICAL ORDER. FOR EXAMPLE, THE SUBTEST "ADDASC" (ADDITION NO REGROUPING CORE) IN GRADE 2 MATHEMATICS WAS REPEATED IN THE A, B, AND C TEST BATTERIES. SCORES FOR THESE OCCASIONS ARE ON FILE IN THE FOLLOWING ORDER: A_ADDASC ('A' BATTERY SCORE ON ADDASC) B_ADDASC ('B' BATTERY SCORE ON ADDASC) C_ADDASC ('C' BATTERY SCORE ON ADDASC) SCORES WHICH ARE IDENTIFIED BY THE SAME SUBTEST LABEL AND ALSO HAVE THE SAME NUMBER OF ITEMS ACROSS OCCASIONS CAN BE ASSUMED TO BE IDENTICAL IN ITEM COMPOSITION ACROSS OCCASIONS. THE NUMBER OF ITEMS PER SUBTEST (NO. ITEMS COLUMN) IS ALSO THE MAXIMUM POSSIBLE SCORE ON THAT SUBTEST. APPENDICES B AND C PROVIDE INFORMATION ON SUBTEST IN- CLUSION ACROSS OCCASIONS. THE D TEST BATTERY INCLUDED ONLY A SELECTED GROUP OF SUBTESTS FROM THE C TEST BATTERY. THEREFORE, MANY SUBTESTS WILL NOT HAVE AN ENTRY FOR THE D TEST OCCASION. GENERAL RECORD FORMAT: I.D. INFORMATION IS IN COLUMNS 1-6 OF THE FIRST CARD IMAGE. SCORE DATA ARE IN COLUMNS 7-80 OF THE FIRST CARD AND IN COLUMNS 1-80 ON ALL SUBSEQUENT CARDS. THERE ARE 10 CARDS/RECORDS PER STUDENT. MISSING DATA: A DATA VALUE OF 999.99 INDICATES MISSING DATA. STUDENTS WHO DID NOT PARTICIPATE IN THE D FOLLOW-UP TESTING WILL HAVE VALUES OF 999.99 FOR THE D SUBTEST SCORES. STUDENTS WHO MISSED TAKING ONE OR MORE TEST BOOKLETS WILL HAVE A MISSING DATA VALUE OF 999.99 FOR THE SUBTESTS IN THOSE BOOKLETS. 1 BTES PHASE III-B FILE GR2.STUDENT PAGE 3 CD VAR LOC F 1 1 1 1.0 GRADE LEVEL: 2 = GRADE 2 CD VAR LOC F 1 2 2 2.0 TEACHER IDENTIFICATION NUMBER = 01-27 CD VAR LOC F 1 3 4 2.0 STUDENT IDENTIFICATION NUMBER = 01-09 CD VAR LOC F 1 4 6 1.0 SEX: 1 = BOY 2 = GIRL << SELECTION TEST VARIABLES >> CD VAR LOC F SUBTEST NO.

NEGATIVE QUESTIONS WERE REVERSED IN POINT WEIGHT SO THAT POSITIVE RESPONSES, I.E., NOT AGREEING WITH NEGATIVE STATEMENT, WERE SCORED HIGHER THAN NEGATIVE RESPONSES, I.E., AGREEMENT WITH NEGATIVE STATEMENT. SEE THE ITEM RESPONSE FILES (ABAT, ETC.) FOR SCORING PROCEDURES. SCORES ACROSS SUBTEST ITEMS WERE SUMMED TO CREATE THE FOLLOWING AFFECT SCORES.
