An Analysis of Scores on the Common Examinations of the National Teacher Examinations of Candidates for Certification in Louisiana.
Tarver, Linda K.; And Others
The purpose of this study is to describe and analyze the performance of Louisiana's potential teachers on the Common Examinations of the National Teacher Examinations (NTE). Scores from 1352 examinees who took the Common Examinations of the NTE in February, 1979, were analyzed. The performance of Louisiana's potential teachers compares favorably with the national performance, both on the Weighted Total, and the Professional Education, Written English Expression, and Literature, Fine Arts, and Social Studies subdivisions. Results indicated a deficiency in Science preparation. The Common Examinations do not effectively discriminate in the four subdivisions. The number of test items in any subdivision does not significantly affect the discriminatory ability of that subdivision. No subdivision is significantly more difficult than any other subdivision. The level of difficulty of the test items does not significantly affect the discriminatory ability of the test items. (BW)
