Statewide Educational Evaluation.
Tronsgard, David T.; And Others
This book has been written for state board of education members and other citizens interested in public education. It is, in a sense, a primer in matters relating to learning, testing, assessment, and evaluation. Presented are some philosophical and political considerations in statewide educational evaluation. Learning is defined and the types and levels of learning are discussed. The remaining sections are devoted to: the measurement and evaluation of studnet learning; the problem of appropriate educational criteria; some suggestions for reporting the outcomes of evaluating student learning; and some rules of thumb which state school board members might employ to assist them in the evaluation of student learning resulting from curricula under their purview. The appendixes contain a directory of key state educational evaluation personnel and contracting agencies used by state education departments for matters relating to assessment. (Author/RC)
