The Development of a Test to Measure Performance of Elementary Education Majors on the American Association for the Advancement of Science's Integrated Process Skills of Science.
Burns, Sandra Flynn
The purpose of this study was to develop, field-test, and validate a useable, objectively-scored test for use with advanced undergraduate college students majoring in elementary education. The first of three tests was submitted to groups of professors and teachers for analysis and criticism. Part II, Form A and B, was developed from the revision of Test I. Test III consisted of items selected from Test II and was administered to 428 advanced students. Validity of the instrument was established. Findings and conclusions showed that an average student could complete the test within 50 minutes. The range of scores was such that it was indicated that the test could measure wide variations in student ability. The greatest use of the instrument seemed to be that as a test to assess differences between groups of students. (Author/EB)
