Pilot Program on Common Status Measures Objective-Referenced Tests. Colorado Evaluation Project, Report No. 1.
Colorado State Dept. of Education, Denver.
The purpose of the Colorado Evaluation Project was to field test the Common Status Measures at grades four and eleven in conjunction with a statewide assessment program based on objective-referenced testing instruments developed by the Colorado Department of Education for grades kindergarten, three, six, nine, and twelve. The evaluation was designed to determine educational needs and educational program performance in Colorado. Multiple-matrix sampling techniques were used. Results of several types of analyses are presented: (1) for each item and item pool, performance statistics for the total pupil sample and by sub-categories, including school program participation, urbanism, sex, ethnic background, second language spoken at home, and socioeconomic status; (2) a profile of those students in the lower 20% on each subject tested for a given grade level; (3) performance statistics for each item and item pool for each school and district; (4) comparisons between national data for the Common Status Measures; (5) item quality, objective appropriateness and student performance for each objective-referenced item pool; (6) item intercorrelations for each subject at each grade level; (7) subject-by-subject correlations within each grade level and Common Status Measures by subject correlations for adjacent grade levels; and (8) production of two tapes, one concerning occupational cognizance at grade 11 and one concerning language arts in grade 3.
