1973 Assessment Workshops: Final Report.
Womer, Frank B.; Lehmann, Irvin J.
Three 3-day assessment workshops were held in Boulder, Colorado from June 19-29, for personnel in the assessment field from state departments of education. Seventy-six participants from 35 states, Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands and the District of Columbia attended. Two of the three workshops concentrated on National Assessment as one model for large-scale assessments. Presentations were made by National staff members. The third workshop was held between the other two. The program for this workshop concentrated on seven different state assessments, a short up-dating on National Assessment, and small group discussion sessions. Presentations were made by state directors of assessment, contractors representatives, and selected National Assessment staff. Evaluations of the workshops were quite positive. In all three workshops over 90 percent of the responses indicated a desire to attend a follow-up workshop in 1974. Most questions elicited very favorable reactions. The major suggestions for improvement were for more discussion time and better speakers. The things liked best were the opportunity to interact with other assessment persons and to hear about other programs.
