Notes

Abstract: The purpose of the authors' research was to determine the accuracy of their assessments in guiding their instruction. The authors pursued this by administering tests to one class of fifteen general education students and one of thirteen Spanish bilingual education students upon completing mathematics instructional units. The authors hypothesized that their scores on these assessments would significantly correlate with District Benchmark scores at the p < .05 level. The authors also believed that mastery observed on weekly post-assessments would also significantly correlate with district benchmark evaluations of mastery at the p < .05 level. The authors discovered that in-class mastery of specific standards did indeed predict mastery of those standards on District assessments. Also, student in-class averages correlated highly with averages on District assessment.
