Measurement and Evaluation in Educational Technology.
Carroll, John B.
Educational measurement and evaluation are technologies which are central to the operation and improvement of the educational process, because they enable the educator to know crucially important things about pupil characteristics and achievements. It also furnishes him with a valid basis for judging the worth and effectiveness of educational programs and innovations, improving them in both broad and detailed features. There is still a large gap between what it is possible to accomplish through measurement and evaluation and what has actually been accomplished. This gap can be filled by training more research and development specialists, training teachers and administrators to utilize research and development results more effectively, and providing adequate funds for these training, research, and development activities.
