International Education From a New Quantitative Perspective.
Educational testing and measurement on an international basis is viewed from the new quantitative perspective provided by the Comprehensive Achievement Monitoring (CAM) method. The technique of longitudinal testing through item sampling employed in CAM is seen as being of significant value in formulating a systematic measure of achievement across national boundaries. Some specific applications of the principles embodied in CAM to the international educational situation are discussed. These include student selection, curriculum and program evaluation, and system monitoring and quality control. These applications are seen as particularly beneficial to developing countries which are attempting educational development and reform. (PR)
