Evaluating and Reporting Pupil Progress. What Research Says to the Teacher Series. No. 7.
Rothney, John W. M.
This booklet, one in a series entitled "What Research Says to the Teacher", deals with the evaluation and reporting of pupil progress. An introduction discusses briefly the purposes, criteria, and methods of student evaluation. Section I examines the standard criteria for student achievement: school marks, standardized tests, curves, essay tests, and teacher-made objective tests. A second section asks questions concerning the personal-social development of the student. The concept of using checklists and rating scales to measure such variables as character and citizenship is discussed, as are other forms of personality rating and character description. Section III considers the proper time for evaluation, as a categorizing method or as a diagnosis. Also briefly discussed are report cards, cumulative records, and teacher attitudes toward reporting student progress. (JB)
