Wisconsin Learner Assessment: 1973 Pilot Year Report. Vol. 1, Report 1.
Wisconsin State Dept. of Public Instruction, Madison. Div. for Management and Planning Services.
This report contains the results of the first statewide educational learner pilot assessment in Wisconsin. The objectives of the program were: (1) to develop and refine the statewide assessment process including instrument development, instrument administration, analysis, interpretation, and dissemination of the results; (2) to provide a preliminary statewide profile of how well students demonstrate their knowledge and skill concerning some important aspects of mathematics and reading; (3) to develop baseline information for measuring progress over time. The development of instruments and objectives and sampling procedures are discussed. The percentage of students who probably would have answered the item correctly if all individuals at that grade level had taken the test is given for each item and objective in the reading and mathematics tests for students in grades 3 and 7. Final comments and recommendations are made. Information regarding the sampling design is presented in the appendix. (RC)
