A Comparison of Standardized Achievement Tests and Direct Measurement Techniques in Measuring Pupil Progress.
Marston, Doug; And Others
The effectiveness of direct measurement techniques and standardized achievement tests for assessing within-individual change over a 10-week period was examined. The Reading Comprehension and Language subtests from the Stanford Achievement Tests and direct measures of reading and written language were administered twice to 83 low-achieving students in grades 3-6. Analyses indicated that greater student gains were evident on the direct measures than on the standardized achievement test. (Author)
