The Approach to the Design of the North Carolina Statewide Assessment of Educational Progress.
Pyecha, John N.
The strategies and problems involved in designing the North Carolina Assessment Program are described. After being given the mission statement and continuing objectives of the North Carolina State Department of Public Instruction (NCDPI), the basic decisionmaking needs of State-level educational planners were identified by the NCDPI/Research Triangle Institute (RTI) design study team. Several alternative assessment plans were developed, costed, and evaluated. This interative design process led to the development of a statewide educational assessment program for evaluating the effectiveness of North Carolina's public elementary and secondary education programs, including a special emphasis on Title I programs.
