Measurement and Evaluation in Indiana Public Schools.
Higgins, James E.; And Others
This report discussed the following questions in regard to testing, measurement and evaluation in the Indiana public schools: (1) Where are we? (2) Is "where we are" different from where we perceive we should be? (3) Do teachers feel competent in testing? (4) How are teachers' skills viewed by their "superiors," the central office administrators? and (5) Where would educational assistance staff time and energy be best served? It is felt that the results of this data collection can be used to develop additional inservice thrusts, and also to identify preservice needs that can and should be met by faculty members in the various teacher-training colleges and universities within the state. Opinionnaires were mailed to approximately 1200 teachers, 900 principals, and 300 superintendents--with a return rate of 348, 418, and 164 respectively. Specific analyses of selected data are addressed in the following chapters of this monograph: (1) classroom testing, (2) standardized testing, (3) pupil test-taking skills and the testing environment, (4) the computer in testing, and (5) an administrator's self-appraisal.
