The Colorado Evaluation Project (Common Status Measures). Progress Report.
Colorado State Dept. of Education, Denver.
The Colorado Evaluation Project was funded to field test the Common Status Measures concurrently with Colorado's pilot program in assessment and evaluation. The primary purpose is to determine Colorado's educational needs, and the secondary purpose is to test procedures for assessment which can be replicated or adapted by local school districts or other States. These activities have been completed: (1) developing test items; (2) building test forms; (3) drawing a sample of pupils; (4) hiring and training test proctors; (5) administering tests; and (6) keypunching data. A description of these activities, resultant products, and problems encountered is provided. Some 12,000 tests were administered to a random sample of students in 31 districts across Colorado. The Common Status Measures were administered to 1,030 fourth- and eleventh-graders in Colorado. Tests in six subject areas were given to determine whether certain curricular objectives are being met.
