Evaluative Aspects of Criterion-Referenced Measures.
Cox, Richard C.
The plea has been made to interpret the concept of criterion-referenced measurement in a broader sense, so that the idea will be utilized in more ways in educational measurement. While applications of the concept have been suggested mainly for programs of individualization, there is no reason to limit the ideas of criterion-referenced measurement to such application. There needs to be some thought given to how the criterion-referenced concept can be applied to the typical teacher-made test as well as to standardized tests. Also, if the idea is to be accepted, some alternative to the traditional approaches to reliability, validity, and item analysis procedures must be investigated. (KJ)
