The Development of Domain-Referenced Tests for an Objectives-Based Reading Program.
Besel, Ronald; Okada, Masahito
Criteria for the selection of item forms, content domains, and sampling procedures for program specific, domain-referenced tests are developed. The primary purpose of these tests is to estimate the extent to which individual pupils have attained or retained the intended learning outcomes of a particular segment of instruction. Tests developed for the tryout of the SWRL Reading Program illustrate the application of the criteria. A variety of critical reading skills is assessed. The use and potential value of facet designed tests for assessing word recognition and novel word decoding is described. Error type scores provide potentially valuable information on which to base prescriptions of supplementary instruction. (Author)
