Abstract: A state-wide survey was conducted in Georgia to determine teacher use of narrative test reports. The teachers surveyed were 572 ninth-grade teachers of reading, language arts, or mathematics. The test reports studied were those prepared for use with Georgia's eighth-grade criterion-referenced tests. The context for the study is the literature about teacher use of test data, the narrative test report literature, and studies about teacher decision-making. The results indicate that teachers are generally supportive of the narrative test report format. However, such factors as availability of test report forms, school organization, and large numbers of students taught mitigate against test use.
