For The Record

February 04, 2009

LAUSD testing: An article in the Jan. 28 California section about a teachers union call for a boycott of district-mandated testing overstated the correlation between improvements in test scores and increased use of periodic assessments. The article said the association was strong last year in 10th-grade English and moderate in Algebra I for high schools in the Los Angeles Unified School District. The article should have said that, based on the Times analysis, the association was moderate in English and weak in algebra. The district's own subsequent research shows what L.A. Unified regards as a strong association between the assessments and higher test scores.
