IEA Six-Subject Survey Instruments: Literature Tests.
International Association for the Evaluation of Educational Achievement, Stockholm (Sweden).
In 1965 the International Association for the Evaluation of Educational Achievement (IEA) inaugurated a cross-national survey of achievement in six subjects: Science, Reading Comprehension, Literature, English as a Foreign Language, French as a Foreign Language, and Civic Education. The overall aim of the project was to use international tests in order to relate student achievement and attitudes to instructional, social, and economic factors, and from the results to establish generalizations of value to policy makers worldwide. Contained here are five tests of the following literary works: "The Use of Force", "I See You Never", "The Man by the Fountain", "The Sea", and "The End of Something" for populations II, IV. Population II consists of students aged 14 to 15 years; population IV, students enrolled in the final year of pre-university training. Answer keys and statistical information can be found in ED 085 709. (RC)
