CSE Elementary School Test Evaluations.
Hoepfner, Ralph; And Others
This is a comprehensive listing of tests, keyed to educational objectives of elementary school education, and evaluated by measurement experts and educators. Four main criteria were selected for evaluating the tests: measurement validity, examinee appropriateness, administrative usability, and normed technical excellence; these four main criteria are sub-divided into 24 aspects. Approximately 1600 scales and subscales of the listed tests are given a numerical rating for each of the 24 aspects (based on given standards) and are then graded as good, fair, or poor for each of the main criteria. Each grade level section details 145 goals of elementary school education and lists the published instruments readily available to assess achievement of each goal at the level. For easy use by school principals and superintendents, who do not necessarily have technical expertise in educational measurement and evaluation, the objectives, relevant test titles, and the test evaluations, appear in one table for each grade. Indexes of goals, tests, publishers, and distributors of tests, are included. This report is part of an Elementary School Evaluation Kit now being developed by the School Evaluation Project at the Center and has been given early publication. (AE)
