Comprehensive Evaluation Project. Final Report.
This project sought to develop a set of tests for the assessment of the basic literacy and occupational cognizance of pupils in those public elementary and secondary schools, including vocational schools, receiving services through Federally supported educational programs and projects. The assessment is to produce generalizable average scores for groups of pupils rather than for individual students. Data collected by the tests will provide a basis for program evaluation criteria. The population consisted of 1,500 pupils at both the 4th and 11th grades with balanced representation for geographic regions, urbanism, and school socioeconomic status. Six forms of the Basic Verbal Status and the Occupational Cognizance Tests were developed for each of the two grades. Basic Verbal Status tests included vocabulary (synonyms and category relationship) and reading comprehension. The Occupational Cognizance Tests included occupational information, occupational intentions, and educational expectations. A complete item analysis is presented in tabular form. Manuals of directions for administering the tests and specimen test forms are appended. (CH)
