Performance Tests for Typewriting and VOE Teachers for Measuring Various Achievement Levels. Monograph Series No. 9.
Chance, Ivey; Whitt, Jerry
The document consists of a set of performance tests developed to assist the typewriting teacher in determining the achievement level of students. Tests for four different levels of achievement are included, with minimum performance standards specified for each level. For all four levels a test is included for timed typing, letter typing, and tabulation. There is a test for manuscript typing for levels two through four, and level four includes a test for typing numbers in context. Alternate forms of each level of test are included to provide for pretests and posttests. Development of the tests involved two testing programs with approximately 2,000 students in over 40 secondary schools and colleges. Data are also provided on the statistical treatment of the tests. Data indicating student scores on the various exercises will enable the teacher to compare the performance of students on a statewide basis. Standards for scoring timed writings, letters, tables, and manuscripts are also provided. (Author/NJ)
