Evaluation: Elementary and Secondary Education. A Report to the Governor and Members of the Legislature Prepared Pursuant to Section 3602 of the Education Law.
New York State Education Dept., Albany.
This report reviews the progress made by the New York State Education Department and local school districts in developing and implementing a comprehensive student evaluation program for elementary and secondary education. With the assistance of local school district personnel and technical consultants, the department concentrated its efforts on identifying the most pressing information needs and the characteristics of instruments adequately supportive of the decisionmaking tasks of today and tomorrow. The "interim" program first described in the report makes the best and the most systematic uses of existing methods and information to evaluate current categorical and general educational programs, and gives the best answers currently possible to pressing, performance-related questions being asked by the educational community. A "projected" program, described in the final part of the report, provides an examination of two state-of-the-art problems that must be overcome if the performance-related questions asked by educators, the State government, or the public at large are to be answered.
