PROJECT TOBI, THE DEVELOPMENT OF A PRE-SCHOOL ACHIEVEMENT TEST. FINAL REPORT.
MOSS, MARGARET H.
THE TEST OF BASIC INFORMATION (TOBI) IS A 54-ITEM, MULTIPLE-CHOICE PICTURE TEST DEVELOPED TO MEASURE PREACADEMIC, SCHOOL-RELEVANT KNOWLEDGE. IT CAN BE USED TO ASSESS PROGRAM EFFECTIVENESS BY GIVING IT AS A PRE- AND POSTTEST. IT CAN BE ADMINISTERED INDIVIDUALLY, OR TO GROUPS OF UP TO 15 IF THERE IS 1 ADULT FOR 3 OR 4 CHILDREN, AND TAKES FROM 15 TO 30 MINUTES TO ADMINISTER. THE TEST ITEMS ARE URBAN-ORIENTED AND WERE SELECTED FROM A POOL OF 500. THE FINAL TEST STANDARDIZATION WAS BASED ON STAFF-ADMINISTERED TESTS OF A SAMPLE OF 539 DISADVANTAGED CHILDREN SELECTED FROM URBAN AREAS ACROSS THE COUNTRY. A KUDER-RICHARDSON 20 (KR 20) RELIABILITY OF .90 WAS OBTAINED, TOGETHER WITH A TEST-RETEST RELIABILITY OF .87. THE LAST IS QUITE UNUSUAL FOR A GROUP TEST OF 4-YEAR OLDS. THE TEST IS NOW AVAILABLE ONLY ON AN EXPERIMENTAL BASIS, BUT PUBLICATION IS BEING CONSIDERED. (DR)
