Impact of Oregon Education: An Assessment of Reading, 1975. General Report.
Oregon State Dept. of Education, Salem.
The basis for this report is an assessment by teachers, administrators, students and parents on how well Oregon's fourth graders are reading. The project was specifically designed to reflect concerns and goals which Oregon citizens regarded as relevant to their children's education. The first section of this report discusses the background of the assessment including such topics as setting goals, assessing student performance, the value of assessment, and how different audiences can use assessment results. The second section examines what to measure, how to measure, selecting students for the assessment, how and when assessment occurred, analyzing the data, judging the data, using the data, and the future of the assessment. Section three examines the domain levels, setting criterion levels, how criterion levels of performance were set, performance by domain area, and performance by student and district characteristics. The fourth section takes recommendations to the Oregon Legislature, to the State Board of Education and Oregon Department of Education, to the State Textbook Commission and local textbook committees, to teachers and district personnel, and to parents and citizens.
