The ANPA Foundation Newspaper Test.
American Newspaper Publishers Association Foundation, Washington, DC.
This document contains instructions for administering the American Newspaper Publishers Association Foundation Newspaper Test, scoring the test, and interpreting the scores. It also includes a description of the nature of the test, each form of the ANPA Foundation Newspaper Test having 30 four-choice questions on the meaning and implications of stories, articles, and other features of a four-page simulated newspaper, tabloid size. There are four forms: two for junior high school (J-1 and J-2) and two for senior high school (S-1 and S-2). The two forms at each level are parallel in content and equal in difficulty; forms J-1 and S-1 are based on one simulated newspaper, forms J-2 and S-2 on another. Included are suggestions for using the test in a pretest-posttest type of evaluation and as a guide for developing objectives in a journalism course. A rationale for administering the test is provided. Copies of the 1972 edition of the test forms are included. (RB)
