From Theory to Curriculum: Then (And Only Then) - Evaluation.
Nelson, Jerald; Drennan, Margaret
The method of utilizing a criterion-referenced testing system by employing the following progression of curriculum development is recommended: 1) A theory of childhood development or learning is identified; 2) Curriculum is developed based upon that theory; 3) Criterion-referenced tests, with items stated in behavioral terms, are developed. An appendix discusses a study of pre-reasoning abilities in preschool classes and includes a comparison of results of three curricular approaches. (MS)
