Career Education Measurement System. Reporting System Evaluation.
Texas Education Agency, Austin. Div. of Program Planning and Needs Assessment.
In order to evaluate and obtain information about the usefulness of the Career Education Measurement System, a questionnaire was developed to survey school personnel perception and interpretation of the reporting system in Texas. The responses to the questionnaire were examined for 22 test instruments used in a pilot test to determine if the items were adequate measures of learner outcomes. An evaluation questionnaire was sent to 524 test administrators on 136 campuses which field tested the career education instruments. Approximately 29% returned useable evaluation forms. The respondents were asked to rank five types of reporting formats: outcome mastery, level of outcome mastery, areas of proficiency, item response, and school curriculum objective--referenced evaluation (SCORE). The SCORE format was most often preferred while the outcome mastery format was least often preferred. The respondents were asked for the following information: the usefulness of the interpretative guide ("Reading the Report") sent with the test results, the usefulness of the information contained in the test results, suggestions on who should receive copies of the test results, when the test results should be received, testing time available, and who should be test administrators. The evaluation form for the career education reporting system is appended. (Author/EC)
