A Model for the Development and Evaluation of Placement Tests for Objective Based Curriculum Management Systems.
Katzenmeyer, Conrad G.; And Others
In many objective-based curriculum management systems, students' curricular activities are carefully directed by their own performance through extensive pretesting. When implementing such programs, however, there are often only rough criteria for appropriate leveling of students, necessitating extensive retesting. This paper outlines a model for the development and evaluation of a placement test for the Word attack area of the Wisconsin Design for Reading Skill Development. A thirty-item placement test was constructed and tried out in two elementary schools prior to program implementation. Development strategies and effectiveness of the placement test in minimizing leveling errors are discussed. (Author)
