Problems Associated with Relating Normative and Skill Tests.
How to describe the Individually Prescribed Instruction (IPI) Placement Tests to the non-IPI community; how to assess student performance over a period of time, and what information can be obtained relative to the IPI curriculum: such are the concerns of this study. A possible solution to the first problem is to describe the IPI Placement Test results in terms of the Iowa Test of Basic Skills (ITBS), Form 4. However, it is concluded, this and the other solutions proposed for the other two problems are not expected to be satisfactory. Holding out more hope is the prospect that the ITBS data coupled with IPI Placement data can provide useful information for descriptive and decision making purposes. (GO)
