School officials to compare school methods
LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. (AP) - The
nation's chief state school officials gave the go-
ahead yesterday for the creation of new ways to
compare how states are educating their children.
Their plan will create a system built around a
common test or joint bank of test questions that all
states could give to pupils in several grades.
THE PLAN was approved overwhelmingly by a
voice vote. Among the handful of "nays" were the
superintendents from Alabama, Arkansas, and
Vermont's school chief, Stephen Kaagan, who
chaired a panel that drew up the blueprint for
future state comparisons, said, "We are closer
together on this issue this year.''
The plan drafted by Kaagan's committee would
create by 1989 a series of "educational indicators"
to provide comparative information in three
" School outcomes, such as how many pupils
graduate from high school or get equivalency
diplomas, state test scores, and percentage of
graduates going to college, joining the military or
" "Contextual factors" such as size, percentage
of students who are poor, limited in speaking
English or handicapped, how many attended pre-
school, parents' educational levels, and per-pupil
* Policies and practices, such as teacher
salaries, per-pupil expenditures, length of school
day and year, extent of advanced placement cour-
ses, rate of vandalism, and proportion of schools
with parents' organizations.
The federal government publishes statistics on
state graduation rates, teachers' pay, per-pupil
spending, and other measures. Most of the infor-
mation is drawn from the chiefs' own state depar-
tments of education.
But Kaplan said states vary widely on how they
gather data and they do not always agree on
STATES ALSO differ on attendance data.
Kaagan noted that California claims its average
daily attendance rate is 98 percent, but California
counts as present anyone with a valid excused
The chiefs' program would rank the states on a
scale of 1 to 99, with a mean score of 50. Each state
would be scored on its educational outcomes,
policies and practices, and contextual factors.
The report suggested that states use questions
from a common test bank, possibly as part of the
existing, federally financed National Assessment
of Educational Progress which Florida, Ten-
nessee, Virginia, Wyoming and New York already
take part in.

MIAMI (AP) - People flocked out

sustained winds of 100 mph were cen-

longitude 76.0 west, in the

local weather veterans call
