EVALUATION AND SELECTION INSTRUMENTS IN TEACHER EDUCATION PROGRAMS.
FARR, S. DAVID
A SURVEY INSTRUMENT DESIGNED TO PROVIDE FOR THE REPORTING OF THE ADMINISTRATION OF TESTS AND THE USE MADE OF TEST SCORES WAS MAILED TO THE 664 MEMBER INSTITUTIONS OF THE AMERICAN ASSOCIATION OF COLLEGES FOR TEACHER EDUCATION. THE MAJOR OBJECTIVES OF THE SURVEY WERE TO (1) DETERMINE THE SCOPE OF THE ADMINISTRATION OF TESTS TO STUDENTS IN TEACHER EDUCATION PROGRAMS, (2) DETERMINE THE USE MADE OF TEST RESULTS AT THE VARIOUS INSTITUTIONS, AND (3) DISCOVER EXPERIMENTAL EFFORTS RELATING TO THE MEASUREMENT PROBLEMS OF TEACHER EDUCATION. THE QUESTIONNAIRES RETURNED BY 443 INSTITUTIONS BECAME THE BASIS OF THE ANALYSIS. TWO BASIC SUMMARIES OF THE DATA WERE MADE. THE FIRST SUMMARY WAS ORGANIZED BY TEST TITLE AND PROVIDED FOR EACH TEST THE NUMBER OF INSTITUTIONS USING THE TEST AND AN ESTIMATE OF THE NUMBER OF STUDENTS INVOLVED. THE SECOND SUMMARY WAS ORGANIZED IN TERMS OF THE VARIOUS DECISIONS IN WHICH THE TEST SCORES WERE USED. REPORTED USE OF TESTS WAS GENERALLY CONSISTENT WITH THE INTENTIONS OF THE TEST AUTHORS AND PUBLISHERS. (JC)
