A BATTERY OF TESTS ON GENERAL EDUCATIONAL DEVELOPMENT FOR POST-ELEMENTARY SCHOOLS. VOL. I.
BENTWICH, J.; AND OTHERS
THIS TEST BATTERY IS DESIGNED TO BE USED AS AN AID IN COUNSELING AND GUIDANCE FOR PUPILS IN THE NINTH AND TENTH GRADES OF ACADEMIC HIGH SCHOOLS IN ISRAEL. AS THE INTENT IS TO MEASURE THE PUPIL'S ABILITY TO DO CRITICAL THINKING IN BROAD AREAS, THE TEST BATTERY MEASURES GENERAL EDUCATIONAL DEVELOPMENT RATHER THAN SPECIFIC ACHIEVEMENT SKILLS IN THE AREAS OF MATHEMATICS, SCIENCE, READING COMPREHENSION, SOCIAL STUDIES, AND ENGLISH LANGUAGE. THE STATISTICAL INFORMATION CONCERNING RELIABILITY, VALIDITY, INTERCORRELATIONS, AND NORMS ARE BASED ON A NATIONAL SAMPLE OF NINTH AND TENTH GRADERS IN ACCREDITED ACADEMIC HIGH SCHOOLS. INSTRUCTIONS FOR ADMINISTERING THE TESTS ARE ALSO GIVEN. THOUGH THE BATTERY IS TO BE USED IN COUNSELING, IT IS EMPHASIZED THAT IT IS NOT YET COMPLETE AND IS INADEQUATE IN ITS PRESENT FORM TO FUNCTION AS A BASIS FOR THE REMOVAL OF A PUPIL FROM AN ACADEMIC HIGH SCHOOL TO A NONACADEMIC ONE. THE NORMS ALSO NEED TO BE EXTENDED TO COVER VOCATIONAL SCHOOLS AND AGRICULTURE SCHOOLS. (CG)
