Chapter 1 Technical Assistance Center, Atlanta, GA. Region 3.; Educational Testing Service, Evanston, IL. Test Information Center.
To help Education Consolidation and Improvement Act Chapter 1 personnel work more effectively with test publishers, a survey was conducted of selected publishers of norm-referenced tests commonly used by Chapter 1 Local Educational Agencies (LEAs). The test publishers included: (1) CTB/McGraw-Hill; (2) The Psychological Corporation; (3) the Riverside Publishing Company; and (4) Science Research Associates, Inc. The survey focused on services publishers provide LEAs in: (1) selecting tests and appropriate scoring services; (2) minimizing turnaround time; (3) verifying scoring reports; (4) using test results for instructional planning; and (5) coping with unexpected problems. Survey results are reported in a 19-item question-and-answer format and are grouped by the above topics. It is possible to identify similarities and differences in publishers' practices. (SLD)
