A Study of the West Virginia State-County Testing Program.
Puzzuoli, David A.; Alexander, Donald L.
In September 1962, the State Board of Education initiated a broad annual study of the academic achievement and scholastic aptitude of West Virginia public schools called the State-County Testing Program. The results of this program in Region II West Virginia schools for 1965-66 - 1969-70 are analyzed to: 1) identify discernable trends; 2) find any significant disparities between results of the Testing Program and the objectives of the Comprehensive Education Program; 3) provide an item analysis on achievement tests used in the State-County Testing Program for academic year 1969-70.
