The Use, Misuse, and Abuse of Tests.
Clark, Phillip I.; And Others
The New England Association for Measurement and Evaluation in Guidance (NEAMEG) Conference on Measurement in Education was designed to (1) provide a forum for the examination and discussion of vital issues related to measurement and evaluation; (2) facilitate communication among educators from various disciplines and levels of education within the New England region, and to encourage their active involvement in "attacking" current identified problems and concerns relating to the use of tests and other evaluative devices; and (3) stimulate the development of a series of position papers stating the views of the professional members of the NEAMEG as a group, which may serve as guidelines for education. The proceedings include: "Innovative Test Usage for Individual Pupil Growth," Philip I. Clark; "National Assessment," Thomas R. Knapp; "State Testing Programs," Paul B. Campbell; "Testing the Disadvantaged," Lenore A. DeLucia; "Computerization in Relation to Testing and Evaluation," James R. Baker; "Testing and its Relevancy to the Seventies," Thomas Burns; "Federally Funded Programs," Thomas Burns; "Disclosure of Test Results," Thomas P. Nally; "Norms: Fact or Fancy," Walter N. Durost; "Tests: Who or What is Being Evaluated," C. Thomas Skoggs; and "The Jensen Report," Paul B. Campbell. A summary of the discussion by the reactors to each presentation follows each paper. (DG) Aspect of National Assessment (NAEP) dealt with in this document: Results (Interpretation).
