Educators, parents and politicians of late have all been concerned with test scores, especially declining test scores. Much debate has taken place concerning whether, in fact, there has been a decline in the level of student performance or, rather, whether there has been a change in the population of students taking a given test. Many explanations have been tendered concerning reasons for the possible decline in test scores. This study was concerned with science scores from one Iowa high school. Specifically, this study sought to determine if there was a decline in science test scores and to determine what variables account for most of the variance in standardized science test scores.
