Proceedings of the 1968 Invitational Conference on Testing Problems.
Educational Testing Service, Princeton, NJ.
The Invitational Conference on Testing Problems has been a major convocation among the various annual meetings of those who are concerned with educational measurement. The first paper by Richard Anderson deals with the evaluation of a small part of an instructional program and deals with it in an experimental fashion. The presentation by Ethna Reid focuses on some of the problems and issues involved in evaluating a large Title III Center. Bertram B. Masia and P. David Mitchell discuss the variables and data sources in evaluating a large national program. J. Alan Thomas discusses some of the problems and theories involved in doing a cost-benefit analysis of a school system. Edmund Gordon's presentation sets forth some of the educational variables which affect instruction but which are not contained within the school system when we consider the school as "its own little universe." Albert Maslow presents some special problems and variables in the employment of the so called disadvantaged. (Author/KJ)
