Program Evaluators Handbook: Measurement.
Farr, S. David; Subkoviak, Michael J.
This handbook for training program evaluators provides background information and practice activities in the following areas: (1) measurement: purposes, ideals, possibilities; (2) defining measurement domains; (3) person and item sampling; (4) test and item selection--with a selected list of standardized tests with pertinent information on each, suggestions for writing objective test items, and formulae for item analysis; and (5) objective observation. It is recommended that each group in training choose one of the four sample situations described and use it throughout the sessions. The situations are: (1) prekindergarten program for disadvantaged children; (2) introduction of teacher aides (elementary); (3) individualizing instruction through computer-based resource units (high school); and (4) improving interracial attitudes and knowledge.
