Large-Scale Objective Referenced Testing: Some Practical Problems and Concerns.
Mathis, William J.
This paper was presented with other papers in a forum dealing with statewide testing programs. The primary purpose of the paper is to address practical considerations and methods of resolution for large districts or states who are planning on conducting large scale testing or assessment programs with criterion or performance referenced measures. The first section lists the parameters and limits within which these programs generally operate. These limits are translated into practical problems and decision points. Methods of resolving the problems are then addressed with emphases being given to professional and community involvement. The paper closes with comments on test validity and how it is affected by these problems and concerns. (Author)
