Implementation Procedures for Statewide Assessment.
Bruno, Nancy L.
Six principles for statewide assessment are discussed: (1) involve the community; (2) specify and define goals; (3) use measuring devices with face and content validity; (4) take noncognitive effects of school into account; (5) design data presentation for lay understanding; and (6) do not let assessment be an end in itself. Decisions to be made in planning and conducting a statewide assessment program are also discussed. They involve: goal setting, establishing priorities, the number of goals to be assessed, the target population, sampling procedures, instrumentation, correlates of achievement, data analysis, reporting of results, and when to conduct the assessment.
