Anchor Test Study. Final Report. Volume 28, Pretest Information Form.
Bianchini, John C.; Loret, Peter G.
The Anchor Test Study provides a method for translating a pupil's score on any one of eight widely used standardized reading tests for Grades 4, 5, and 6 to a corresponding score on any of the other seven tests, as well as furnishing new nationally representative norms for each of the eight tests. In addition, the Study presents new estimates of alternate form reliability for each test, provides estimates of the intercorrelations among the tests, and explores empirically some methodological questions in test-equating. Contained in this volume of the Study is the Pretest Information Form which is filled out by school personnel. Information requested on the form includes standardized tests administered in the school, testing schedules, information regarding grade designations, ability grouping, demographic information and socioeconomic status of the students enrolled in that school. In its original form, this volume also contained other information on the administration and processing of the survey. This information was removed to protect the confidentiality of the data. (RC)
