Humanizing Assessment Reports with a Computer.
Mathews, Walter M.
Five computerized narrative assessment reports are discussed. These are: (1) the Teaching Information Processing System Student Report, used for a college economics course; (2) the Preliminary Scholastic Aptitude Test (PSAT) Score Report; (3) the Programmed Composition of Psychological Test Reports employed at the Mayo Clinic for reporting results of the Minnesota Multi-phasic Personality Inventory and the California Psychological Inventory; (4) a report devised by the Madison, Wisconsin public schools to explain individual performance on the Iowa Tests of Basic Skills; and (5) a report developed under the auspices of the Iowa Testing Programs to serve as a model narrative system for communicating results of the Iowa Tests of Basic Skills. The conclusion is reached that such narrative reports have several advantages, including flexibility, efficiency, and clarity of communication. In addition, since they provide personalized and self-explanatory information to students, parents, and other laymen, they serve an important public relations function. (PB)
