The Use of Norm-Referenced Survey Achievement Tests with Mexican-American Migrant Students: A Literature Review and Analysis of Implications for Evaluation of the Texas Migrant Education Program.
Littlefield, John H.
The literature concerning the appropriateness of 9 norm-referenced survey achievement tests for use with Mexican American migrant students in grades 1 through 7 in Texas is reviewed in this report, which provides an evaluation of each test by the Center for the Study of Evaluation. The report provides the following information for each test: (1) ratings in the areas of math, reading, and oral-aural language; (2) the National Consortia for Bilingual/Bicultural Education report on the number of Title VII (Elementary and Secondary Education Act) bilingual projects which used the test during 1970-71; and (3) a review of research studies and state departments of education reports related to using the test with Mexican American or migrant students. Part II of the report discusses some of the implications of using norm-referenced tests and suggests possible alternative solutions to the problem of finding an appropriate instrument for evaluating Texas migrant education programs. Also included is a 42-item bibliography. (Author/NQ)
