The Placement of Students in Viable Learning Situations Through the Use of Achievement Tests and Systems Engineering Rather than Through Annual Promotion and Retention. Volume II of II. Final Report.
Scheuerer, Daniel T.; And Others
This document, the second of two volumes of a final report on a nongraded, phased, secondary school, presents the achievement instruments specifically developed as part of the operations research undertaken in that project. An intent of the project was to establish an acceptable procedure for developing instrumentation to support student placement and movement through a nongraded system. The instruments themselves should be considered placement measures not specific achievement measures. The tests developed were intended for use only in the school investigated in this report, and were normed on the population of that school. Attempts to apply them in other educational situations may be both misleading and unreliable. See also TM 000 698. (CK)
