Minnesota Educational Assessment: A Comprehensive Planning Study.
Pyecha, John N.
The proposed program represents a vehicle whereby Minnesota can conduct a comprehensive assessment of the State's educational progress. It can provide a means of periodically monitoring achievement in the cognitive, affective, and psychomotor domains. The program is modeled after the National Assessment of Education Progress (NAEP), an ongoing educational project designed to give educators and the lay public a better look at those knowledges and skills that American youth have acquired. NAEP provides for a systematic, continuous, census-like survey of knowledges, skills, understandings, and attitudes as exhibited by students and young adults in four age levels and across ten different subject areas. By following the NAEP model, Minnesota can hopefully reduce the Minnesota student assessment results to NAEP results for students in the nation as a whole, as well as for those in the Central Region; and take advantage of exercise administration, data collection, sampling, and data analysis methodologies developed by NAEP. (Portions of pages 29 and 86 may reproduce poorly.) (Author/WM) Aspect of National Assessment (NAEP) dealt with in this document: Procedures (Replication).
