Anchor Test Study. Final Report. Volume 29, Ancillary Data Obtained on Individual Pupils.
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. Included in this volume of the Study are directions for filling out and checking answer sheets for the Anchor Test Study by the test administrator including six questions concerning the pupils' primary language, mental, physical, or learning handicaps, racial or national background, and IQ range. In its original form this volume also contained sample test materials, including test booklets, manuals, answer sheets, etc. which were deleted due to copyright restrictions. (RC)
