An Application of Criterion Referenced Testing.
Knipe, Walter H.; Krahmer, Edward F.
Criterion referenced testing has received considerable theoretical, but only limited practical, application. Grand Forks School District has developed mathematics criterion referenced tests for grades three to nine. The tests are keyed to a hierarchical set of approximately 50 performance objectives and 40 individualized contracts per grade level. These tests were administered on a pre-post basis during 1971-72. This study was designed to consider the following three concerns: (1) adoption experiences when using criterion referenced testing, (2) research conclusions as a byproduct of this testing, and (3) attitudes of classroom teachers to this method as compared to nationally formed tests. Data for the second concern indicate different orders and grade levels at which students learn specific skills in various schools. (Author)
