Humanizing the Testing Aspect of Evaluation.
Cluff, Robert B.; Smith, Charles W.
This paper presents guidelines for valid and effective test preparation and presentation. Working on the assumption that teacher secrecy about tests and the subsequent student test-fear are pointless and harmful, this paper outlines some tools for test preparation, such as pretests, teacher file cards as to items covered in class and clearly outlined course objectives. Also covered are some principles to be considered in preparing tests--such as, for a test to be valid, questions must be in line with what was actually taught. The paper concludes that tests must be more humanly conceived, but they still must not be thought of as ends in themselves. (JA)
