A Plan for Evaluating the IPI Testing Program.
Unks, Nancy J.
The testing sub-program is designed to provide the diagnostic instruments necessary to measure pupil progress through the Individually Prescribed Instruction (IPI) curricula. Its objectives are to provide information about pupils which teachers can use to direct each child's individual learning program, to provide the measurements necessary for the research and evaluation of the IPI project and its curricula, and to provide information about the IPI achievement tests that can be used to improve the test's service to teachers and pupils. The evaluator must be able to define in operational terms the purpose of the test, compare these objectives with the plan for the operation of the testing program, and evaluate its actual operation. The actual assessment of the testing program's outcomes requires validity, reliability, and item analysis information for all the IPI instruments. An outline of the evaluation plan for the IPI testing program is presented in diagram form. (JY)
