Development of a Criterion Referenced Test for Home Economics (Consumer Education), 10/7/81-6/15/82.
Brailsford, Amelia T.
A project was conducted to develop a criterion-referenced student testing program for secondary home economics (consumer education) in South Carolina. Procedures used to develop the test included the following: (1) the content elements of the consumer education curriculum were identified; (2) each content element was classified into the type and level of knowledge expected of the students; (3) appropriate test items were developed for each content element; (4) items were reviewed for face validity; (5) items were field tested; (6) an item analysis based on field test results was performed; (7) items were revised as necessary; (8) the final form of the test was developed; and (9) the criterion level was set. (Three forms of the tests are included in this document. The tests have some matching exercises, some multiple choice items, and a few short answer items. Number of test items ranges from 109 to 120.) (KC)
