Summer (1968) Institute on Evaluation, University of Illinois. Supplemental Report.
Cooperative Educational Research Lab., Inc., Northfield, IL.
This report describes an attempt to revise and pilot-test an achievement quiz, a background information form, and an attitude inventory considered inadequate when used at the Summer (1968) Institute on Evaluation at the University of Illinois. In the original achievement quiz, most items tested recall or information and few tested the student's ability to comprehend. In the revision, items were written at a transformation or evaluation level. Based on a field test at Loyola University, an item analysis of the data indicated an improvement. The revised background information form was constructed to be more selective among applicants and thereby to improve future institutes. Both a second and third edition of the attitude inventory were tested in a field sample of 29 Loyola students to determine the relationship of the inventory's factors to the individual's performance on the achievement quiz and his background information form. The overall objective of the institute was to develop a climate among educators supportive of evaluation. (LN)
