Implementing, Evaluating, and Using a Statewide Assessment Program: Logistics and Contracted Services.
Loret, Peter G.
Under contract with the Oregon State Department of Education, Educational Testing Service (ETS) assisted in the preparation of a fourth grade reading assessment test based on, or modified from, Instructional Objectives Exchange materials. ETS produced test books, answer sheets, and all required ancillary materials necessary for test distribution and administration to a sample of 104 schools, previously selected on the basis of geographic region, district wealth, and district size. Rights, Wrongs, and "Don't Know" pupil scores were reported to schools and districts for 25 specific reading objectives and 4 grouped objectives (word attack, vocabulary, comprehension, and application). Summary statistics for schools were also prepared and distributed. A special vocabulary self-report section/score was included in both reports. At the state level, a number of item analyses were performed, and a series of weight frequency distributions prepared. A total of 4,127 pupils at 102 schools actually took the test with 299 pupils reported as absent. (Author)
