Directions for administering and scoring the test are detailed. Standardization processes and reliability reports are noted together with a discussion of the interpretation and use of the results. Appendices contain a list of the major economic generalizations which provide the conceptual framework for the PTEU and a list of participating schools which administered the test to third-grade students.
