A COMPARISON OF STANDARD AND VISUAL ADMINISTRATIONS OF THE CONCEPT MASTERY TEST.
CURTIS, H.A.; KROPP, R.P.
A STUDY WAS CONDUCTED TO DETERMINE CHANGES IN SCORE CHARACTERISTICS RELATED TO VARIOUS CONDITIONS OF SPEEDEDNESS WHEN A TEST IS PRESENTED VISUALLY BY PROJECTING ONE ITEM AT A TIME. THIS METHOD OF STUDY IS POTENTIALLY USEFUL FOR PRESENTING TEST MATERIALS BY TELEVISION. THE TOTAL SCORE AND PART SCORE DATA REVEALED HIGH RELATIONSHIPS BETWEEN THE NORMAL AND THE PROJECTED PRESENTATION OF MATERIALS ADOPTED FROM THE TERMAN CONCEPT MASTERY TEST, FORM T, TO GRADUATE STUDENTS. THERE WAS TENTATIVE EVIDENCE THAT TESTS OF THIS TYPE, WHEN ADMINISTERED UNDER PACED, PROJECTED CONDITIONS, COULD BE SPEEDED GREATLY WITHOUT APPRECIABLY ALTERING TEST RELIABILITY AND VALIDITY. HOWEVER, SEPARATE NORMS WOULD NEED TO BE CONSTRUCTED FOR SCORES OBTAINED UNDER HIGHLY SPEEDED CONDITIONS WHICH PRODUCE SCORE DECREMENTS. IT WAS OBSERVED THAT PACED, VISUAL TESTING LED TO A LARGER NUMBER OF RESPONSES BY THE SUBJECT AND THAT THESE RESPONSES WERE GIVEN IN A SHORTER AMOUNT OF TIME AS COMPARED, IN BOTH CASES, TO PERFOMRANCE ON FORMS NORMALLY ADMINISTERED. THE INTRODUCTION OF AN INTEREXPOSURE INTERVAL DID NOT SEEM TO INCREASE SCORES. THE PACED, VISUAL TESTS SEEMED TO INDUCE A HIGHER LEVEL OF MOTIVATION ON THE PART OF SUBJECTS THAN DID THE TRADITIONAL PRESENTATION. THERE WAS INTENSE CONCENTRATION AND SUSTAINED PERFORMANCE BY EACH SUBJECT. (AUTHORS)
