Developing a Large Scale Assessment Program.
Womer, Frank B.
Education has become one of America's biggest industries. As a result, the public wants some evidence concerning the quality of the educational program. This booklet was written to delineate the role of assessment as an important aspect of a comprehensive accountability system for the nation's elementary and secondary schools. It describes what assessment is, provides an overview of assessment, and tells how to plan and develop tasks in an assessment program. Several State assessment programs are also described and a checklist for evaluating an assessment program is provided. (JF)
