Questions and Problems in Science.
Dressel, Paul L.; Nelson, Clarence H.
This folio of test items, contributed by a number of colleges and universities from their course, placement, entrance, or other institutional examinations, was compiled to aid teachers in constructing tests. Only those science courses offered in the first two years of college are represented by the scope of the items. The test items may also serve as models for those who are relatively inexperienced in item writing. A major consideration in using these items is that of relating them to the testing of various objectives. These questions and problems are arranged under some thirty subject matter headings in each of the two major subdivisions: Biological Science and Physical Science. The items are classified according to Bloom's taxonomy under the following major headings: Knowledge; Comprehension; Application; Analysis; Synthesis; and Evaluation. (AG)
