Minimum Competency Testing: Inception through Remediation.
McLean, James E.; And Others
This document provides background on the development of the Alabama Basic Competency Tests (ABCT). James E. McLean, in "Introduction to the ABCT," discusses the creation of the tests, compares them with the California Achievement Tests, and indicates the ABCT relationship to the Alabama High School Graduation Exam. "Review of Past Research on Remediation for Minimum Competency Testing," by Peggy Connell, reviews current literature to investigate remedial services provided to students to help them pass minimum competency tests. James Davidson, in "Results of a Survey to Assess Remediation Plans Being Implemented," reports that 46 responses of 127 school superintendents surveyed to determine systemwide plans for remediation, revealed several patterns of remediation. A list of responsibilities related to competency testing which have been delegated to school counselors is presented by Gypsy Abbott in "The Role of the Counselor in Minimum Competency Testing." Abbott offers suggestions as to when and how to offer remediation in "Practical Implications of Research Findings." (PN)
