Preliminary Data from the Progress Testing.
Children's Television Workshop, New York, NY.; Educational Testing Service, Princeton, NJ.
To improve the children's television program "Sesame Street" while it is being produced, a program of evaluative research is being conducted by the Children's Television Workshop to provide constant feedback to the producers. Progress examination involves staged achievement testing of 100 viewing and 100 nonviewing, randomly assigned, four- and five-year-olds from day care centers. Each time the retests are given, the following concepts are measured: numbers, letters, body parts, forms, classification, sorting, relations, and puzzles. This text provides an explanation of testing techniques, tabular results, and guidelines for interpretation. (EMH)
