Selected Test Items in American History. Bulletin Number 6, Fifth Edition.
Anderson, Howard R.; Lindquist, E. F.
Designed for high school students, this bulletin provides an extensive file of 1,062 multiple-choice questions in American history. Taken largely from the Iowa Every-Pupil Program and the Cooperative Test Service standardized examinations, the questions are chronologically divided into 16 topic areas. They include exploration and discovery; colonial settlement and life; the Revolution and Constitution; the early national period; westward movement; social economic, and cultural development (1824-1860); sectionalism; Civil War and Reconstruction; passing of the frontier; the political scene (1876-1900); rise of Big Business; the Progressive Era; World War I and postwar adjustments; the Great Depression; World War II and after; and chronology. Also included are sections on how to phrase test questions, how to assemble a test unit, and the various advantages of a multiple-choice test. (DE)
