Teacher/Student Perceptions of Minimum Competency Instruction.
Smith-Moore, Cathy; Bowden, Barbara
The Alabama High School Graduation Examination (AHSGE) was given to eleventh graders for the first time in October 1983. In April, 1983, an instructional validity survey was conducted concurrently with the piloting of the AHSGE to determine if seventh, eighth, ninth, and tenth grade students were being taught the skills tested on the AHSGE. Teachers were asked to indicate what percentage of students were taught each skill identified in the AHSGE item specifications; students were asked if they had received instruction in each skill. The sample of schools used for the instructional validity survey was the same as that used for pilot testing the AHSGE. In the perception of teachers, there was a .95 probability that a student would have received instruction on each competency during the four-year span of grades 7-10. Similarly, in the students' perception, there was a .98 probability that he or she would have received instruction on each competency. (BW)
