The Mathematics Evaluation Materials Package (MEMP) is a set of objectives and companion test items for mathematics education in Grades 4 to 6. Developed for classroom use in a setting that emphasizes increased teacher and principal decision-making and flexible curricular guidelines, it distinguishes itself from other evaluation devices in the variation of patterns of objectives which it accommodates. Educational objectives that are stated in terms of student performance, and that are coupled with companion test items, provide the basic elements for measuring student achievement in a manner that is different from standardized testing and, in most cases, different from usual programs of pupil testing. MEMP can be used for designing test covering short units of work or for constructing longer tests. It can be useful during changes in curricula because the various curriculum options that are open to teachers may be compared, as they are tried, in their effects on student performance. Included are references concerning criterion-referenced tests, achievement evaluation, instructional objectives and elementary mathematics curriculum. For related document see ED 080602. (Author/RC)
