The Promotion, Dissemination, and Utilization Plan for the North Carolina Statewide Assessment of Educational Progress.
Brown, William J., Jr.
In many instances, the promotion of educational assessments has been viewed as a threat to some groups. Carefully conceived operational and analysis plans for state assessment may have little impact unless the purposes of assessment are clear and diffusion and utilization of information are well planned. Equally important is the provision of technical assistance in interpreting the implications of the assessment and providing administrators with adequate lead-in time. This paper addresses the pre- and post-assessment field work which was provided for local school administrators, teacher groups, supervisors, and state agency personnel. It also outlines the most effective means for reporting information to educators, lay public, and the legislature. The need for effective utilization of the results is discussed. (Author/RS)
