Evaluation in Secondary School Mathematics.
McNaughton, A. E.
This report traces the development of 20 objective test items for secondary mathematics, part of an Evaluation Project designed to compile a reservoir of items to serve as prototypes for teacher-constructed tests. The report first shows how an individual item is written and tested. Next, a classification system of items by subject matter and pupil response is described. The four categories used for pupil response are the abilities to recall standard procedures, to apply them, to choose the correct process, and to devise original methods. This system is illustrated by a test consisting of 20 items covering these four categories in each of five topic areas taken from Form 3 mathematics (approximately grade nine). Lastly, the report describes the standardization of this test, including the preliminary trial, the choice of a representative student sample, the administration of the test, and the item analysis of the results.
