Norming of a Basic Learning Exam and Its Use to Predict GED Results.
Waggener, Robert; And Others
A large scale study of local norms that are directly related to the interests of military education counselors is described. In a cooperative effort, the U.S. Armed Forces Institute and the Test Department of Harcourt Brace Jovanovich, Inc. normed the Adult Basic Learning Examination (ABLE) and validated its utility in predicting success on the General Educational Development (GED) tests using selected samples of the military population. The data provided are directly relevant to decisions regarding competency in basic skills and those involving the prediction of success on the GED tests. In addition, the data permit counselors to develop performance frames of reference for specific groups within the military population. Military educational counselors can now not only make judgments based on valid information but can initiate programs of action with confidence since the prescribed intervention is rooted in reliable assessment.
