Activities and Arrangements for the 1969-70 Michigan Assessment of Education.
Michigan State Dept. of Education, Lansing.
Progress in the Michigan Statewide Assessment Program initiated during the 1969-70 school year for the purpose of evaluating certain performance levels of the Michigan Public School System is summarized. This report focuses on the assessment of Basic Skills performance in the fourth and seventh grades and describes the specific steps taken to accomplish this objective: selection of local and intermediate district coordinators responsible for test administration and collation of test data; creation of an ad hoc test specifications committee; creation of a technical advisory group that would provide alternative solutions to potential assessment problems; and creation of a citizens committee to articulate general educational goals of the system. Details on the test battery, its administration, the machinery for test data collection, and criteria for classification of school districts according to community type and geographic region are presented. An appendix listing Michigan School Districts by community type and region is included. See TM 000 324, TM 000 345, and TM 000 347-49. (AE)
