The Development and Management of a Pilot Project for a Reading Assessment System.
Abbott, Muriel M.; And Others
The objectives of the symposium were to provide an example of the institution of a systems approach to the solving of an educational problem and to relate this approach to current measurement issues such as criterion-referenced interpretation of test scores and individualization of assessment, diagnosis and instruction. A pilot project in reading assessment was developed and implemented. It consisted of an integrated package, all components being interrelated through behavioral objectives. The system included a set of behavioral objectives, instructional programs designed to lead to their achievement, a means of measuring the extent to which objectives are achieved, and provision for feedback to decision makers. Representatives of the test publisher discussed the design and production of the assessment system. Representatives of the local educational agencies discussed implementation and function of the pilot project in the actual school situations. The educational importance of the symposium lies in the fact that although the issues faced and solutions derived are discussed with reference to a particular pilot project in reading, they are applicable to other instructional situations.
