This first report in the 1974-75 Michigan Educational Assessment Program presents the objectives of the assessment program and indicates in detail some of the specific procedures to be used. The program provides achievement measures for grades one, four, and seven. The measures at all three grades are objective-referenced tests constructed through cooperative efforts of selected school districts, technical support contractors, and the Department of Education. For grade one assessment, introduced as a pilot project, there were 44 separate tests measuring 48 pre-primary performance objectives in the cognitive, affective, and psychomotor domains. The objectives tested are included as Appendix C. The fourth and seventh grade testing program measures student achievement of performance objectives in reading and math. The objectives are appended. Attitude and Word Relationships tests are optional in this year's program. A special feature of the 1974-75 program is the inclusion of experimental items in science and mathematics for grade four and seven. Procedural guidelines include such topics as testing dates, local district responsibility, materials shipment, students to be tested, reporting results, and so forth. (RC)
