A Model for the Evaluation of a Testing Program. Working Paper Number Four of the Program of Studies in Educational Research.
Unks, Nancy J.; Cox, Richard C.
The evaluation of a testing program is necessary before or during a sound total project evaluation. Ideally, the testing program study should be concurrent with, and equal in magnitude to, the total project evaluation. Step one in an evaluation is to define the testing program's objectives in operational terms. Step two is a thorough description of the innovation to be studied. Then the evaluation program should examine the instruments used to conduct tests, obtaining validity, reliability, and item analysis data for all such instruments. A summary is then made which interprets the information accumulated in the first three phases. A diagram of such an evaluation procedure is presented. (JY)
