Test of Understanding in Personal Economics: Interpretive Manual and Discussion Guide, and Test Form.
Joint Council on Economic Education, New York, NY.
This test was developed in conjunction with the series of Guides for teaching personal economics in the social studies, business, and home economics curricula. The test itself consists of 50 multiple choice questions selected as having greatest validity for evaluation and representing the best balance among what should be measured to indicate competency in personal economics as defined in the Guides. The interpretive manual explains the development and use of the test, instructions for test administration and scoring, and an item-by-item rationale. Also provided are normative data which resulted from administration of the test to high school students in the country who had not as yet been exposed to classes based on these Guides. These data included as an aid to the teacher and should not be considered as standards for achievement. An Answer Sheet, hand scoring key, and a Users' Report Form are included in the manual. (See SO 001 628 for related documents.) (JLB)
