COMPUTER TECHNIQUES FOR WEEKLY MULTIPLE-CHOICE TESTING.
BROYLES, DAVID
TO ENCOURAGE POLITICAL SCIENCE STUDENTS TO READ PROPERLY AND CONTINUOUSLY, THE AUTHOR GIVES FREQUENT SHORT QUIZZES BASED ON THE ASSIGNED READINGS. FOR EASE IN ADMINISTRATION AND SCORING, HE USES MARK-SENSE CARDS, ON WHICH THE STUDENT MARKS DESIGNATED AREAS TO INDICATE HIS NUMBER AND HIS CHOICE OF ANSWERS. TO EMPHASIZE THE VALUE OF CONTINUED HIGH LEVEL PERFORMANCE AND TO INFORM STUDENTS OF THEIR CURRENT STATUS, CUMULATIVE SCORES ARE REPORTED. ADVANTAGES OF THE PROCESS INCLUDE (1) AUTOMATIC SCORING AND REPORTING WITH LITTLE EFFORT OF THE INSTRUCTOR, OTHER THAN PREPARATION OF A CORRECT MASTER CARD, (2) USE OF COMPUTER DATA STORAGE TO COMPILE CUMULATIVE SCORES, (3) AUTOMATED COMPUTATION OF GRADES BASED ON THESE AND OTHER EVALUATIVE SCORES, AND (4) ITEM ANALYSIS FOR IMPROVEMENT OF THE TESTS. BY RELIEVING THE TEACHER OF MUCH OF THE MECHANICAL ROUTINE ASSOCIATED WITH TEST SCORING, RECORDING, AND ANALYSIS, THIS SYSTEM PERMITS MORE FREQUENT AND EFFECTIVE EVALUATION. (WO)
