Reading literacy in the United States : findings from the IEA Reading Literacy Study by Marilyn R Binkley( Book )

4 editions published between 1996 and 1997 in English and held by 375 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Using data from the 1991 iea (International Association for the Evaluation of Educational Achievement) Reading Literacy Study, a study compared United States fourth- and ninth-grade students to students in 32 other countries; examined relationships between reading comprehension and aspects of family, schooling, and community; and investigated the nature of reading instruction in American classrooms. National samples of classes at the grade level containing the most 9-year-olds and 14-year-olds were used. A "world average" was constructed of the 18 participating nations that are also members of the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (oecd). Results indicated that (1) American fourth graders outperformed students from all other countries except Finland; (2) American ninth graders' performance was closely grouped with that of students from 15 other nations; (3) in the United States, White students read better than Black and Hispanic students; (4) most groups of American students outperformed the oecd average; (5) students whose parents did not finish high school read at about the same level as the oecd average at fourth grade, but fell below the average in the ninth grade; (6) when differences in wealth, race/ethnicity, level of parental education, and other related attributes were taken into account, children from one-parent mother-only families did as well as children from two-parent families; (7) parents' educational attainment influenced reading comprehension over and above other aspects of family background; (8) what teachers said they believed about reading instruction differed markedly from what they actually did and had students do.

Achievement in America : national report of the United States for the International Educational Achievement Project by Richard M Wolf( Book )

2 editions published between 1976 and 1977 in English and held by 328 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume documents the United States participation in a multi-national study of student achievement in six subject matter areas and presents the results of a number of analyses of U.S. data that should be of interest to American educators. Subject areas dealt with include science, reading comprehension, literature, French as a foreign language, English as a foreign language, and civic education. The U.S. data are analyzed in a comparative international perspective, by four regions of the U.S., by various school and pupil characteristics (including teacher variables), and between predominantly black and predominantly white schools. The analyses attempt to clarify the relationships among academic achievement and various school and non-school variables. (Author/EB)

Separate volumes giving fuller information on each have been published. The present volume contains a summary of the information provided in these separate reports. In addition to chapters discussing factors associated with the six subjects, the book addresses a chapter to the origin and purpose of the study, the first steps of the study, the independent variables in the study, and the method of analysis. The final chapters deal with some of the more important findings of the study and the interpretation of national contrasts in school achievement. (Dmt)

"The Third International Mathematics and Science Study (TIMSS) is the latest, most ambitious, and most complex in the series of international studies of student achievement undertaken by the International Association for the Evaluation of Educational Achievement (IEA). The current study, under development since the late 1980s, is designed to measure the mathematics and science achievements of students in the early, middle, and final years of secondary schooling and investigate differences in curriculum and instruction ... TIMSS seeks to measure the home background and classroom environment of students in all three populations, as well as the nature of the mathematics and science curricula intended for, and presented to, each population. It also seeks descriptions of the classroom, schools, and national contexts within which education takes place"--Page 1 of technical report
