Individualized Instruction and Statewide Assessment: The New Jersey Educational Assessment Program.
Ascher, Gordon
The New Jersey Educational Assessment Program, designed to provide useful information to educational decision-makers at a variety of levels, is discussed as to a number of its characteristics. These program characteristics are: Goals--long range goals, outcome goals, and process goals; Test Development--fourth grade reading and mathematics and twelfth grade reading and mathematics; Test Administration--to all fourth and twelfth grade public school students in New Jersey; Test Results and Their Use--fourth grade mathematics test scores. Five tables provide test data for the Grade 4 mathematics test for a fictitious school district: Table 1 provides information about five items clustered under the heading "Problem Solving"; Tables 2 and 3 provide information that permits the fictitious district to compare its results to those of the state as a whole and to Local Education Agencies (LEA's) serving communities with similar socioeconomic status; Table 4 provides information about the LEA, and Table 5 represents a group of 47 districts that have a similar configuration of "hard-to-change" variables, such as SES, educational level of parents, etc. (DB)
