The Development of Randomized Achievement Monitoring, Second Annual Report.
Allen, Dwight W.; Gorth, William P.
The current philosophical position of the project is reviewed and a variety of issues relevant to educational evaluation and achievement monitoring are enumerated. Various past attempts to model the variables of school learning are reviewed and those adopted for the Comprehensive Achievement Monitoring model are discussed. The student variables include verbal, reasoning, spatial, perceptual, and memory aptitudes in the general domain; and prior achievement, motivation, anxiety, sociological characteristics, and rate of learning in the task specific domain. Instructional variables are teacher, treatment characteristics, and time. Two important features of the program are (1) the emphasis placed on defining course objectives in a detailed manner, and (2) monitoring student achievement on these objectives longitudinally. The report also discusses the focus, resources, collection, organization, and analysis of data that will be used to evaluate the project. Finally, the favorable teacher and student reactions to the monitoring are discussed. (AE)
