Anchor Test Study. Equivalence and Norms Tables for Selected Reading Achievement Tests (Grades 4, 5, 6).
Bianchini, John C.; Loret, Peter G.
This user's manual contains the major products of the data collection of the Anchor Test Study, a 34 volume report equating scores of eight widely used reading tests for grades 4, 5, and 6 in reading comprehension, vocabulary, and total reading. This manual provides: (1) equivalency tables which allow transformation of raw scores on one reading test to those of another, (2) new national individual and school mean norms tables, and (3) instructions for the use of the tables. Data are provided for the following eight tests: California Achievement Tests (1970), Comprehensive Tests of Basic Skills (1968), Gates MacGinitie Reading Tests (1964), Iowa Tests of Basic Skills (1971), Metropolitan Achievement Tests (1970), Sequential Tests of Educational Progress (1969), SRA Achievement Series (1971), and Stanford Achievement Tests (1964). In addition to providing procedures (with illustrative examples) for using the data, the manual contains a brief summary of the study design and analyses. (Author/RC)
