Proceedings of the State Advisory Committee on the Assessment of Educational Quality (1st, Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, February, 1968).
Pennsylvania State Dept. of Public Instruction, Harrisburg.
Proceedings of the first meeting of the State Advisory Committee for the Pennsylvania Bureau of Quality Education Assessment are provided. The proceedings are comprised of the following: Superintendent's Message; Charge to the Committee; The Plan for Assessing Educational Quality in Pennsylvania; What Will Quality Education Assessment Measure?; Progress Report on the National Assessment Project; Summary of Comments and Suggestions; and Conclusion. Concerns of the committee were related to the sampling procedure for the April 1968 testing, the drawback of the plan in the reliance on paper and pencil self-report instruments, the items language in terms of difficulty level and of semantics, the working of certain items which seemed to imply a value judgment of the behavior in question, and the need to establish a list of "guidelines" for teachers concerning the nature of the assessment and its purposes.
