A Position on the Use of Scores in CEEB Achievement and Listening Comprehension Tests for Program Evaluation and Use of Published Norms.
Lester, Kenneth A.
A strong stand against the use of College Entrance Examination Board (CEEB) scores to evaluate high school language programs is developed in this position paper. Equally criticized is the practice of teacher evaluation based on analysis of student achievement as reflected in the scores. The mystery of determining the significance of percentile rank or "norm" tables to be used in the score interpretation of a particular test is dispelled in a discussion of how percentile ranks were developed. Concluding remarks bear on the issue of student evaluation in the light of ranking procedures used in the CEEB test. (RL)
