Teaching Spanish by Being Responsible for Specific Objectives. Third Progress Report (Evaluation of Test Data) for the Development of County Wide Articulation in Foreign Language Instruction Through Common Measurement Procedures.
Damore, Anthony P.
This report summarizes the activities and accomplishments of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) Title III Project No. 2635 for the school year 1968-69. While the basic project goals continue to be to develop common measurement procedures and a complementary program of inservice education that interrelates the process of instruction and measurement, two new objectives were added for the 1968-69 school year. They are: 1) to develop final forms of criterion-referenced tests, and 2) to develop a usable ninth grade placement test. The achievement of these two objectives is described with emphasis on the discussion of three methods for predicting success or failure in the ninth grade foreign language experience. The experimental, statistical results of teacher recommendations, placement, and transfer tests are compared and described in this report. Project results and changes in participants' attitudes toward the use of behavioral objectives in planning curriculum are examined. Cooperating community agencies are listed. A student questionnaire, test scripts, and answer booklets are reproduced in the appendix. For a related document see ED 025 982. (RL)
