Test Content Specifications for the Survey of Basic Skills; Written Expression and Spelling; Grades Six and Twelve.
California State Dept. of Education, Sacramento.
Under the California Assembly Bill 665 of 1972, the state assessment program must test all students in grades 1, 2, 3, 6, and 12 in reading skills, and those in grades 6 and 12 to assess their skills in effectiveness of written expression, spelling, and mathematics. The state may develop its own tests, and a matrix sampling approach may be used for collecting data. This document contains the content specifications that were developed for the written expression and spelling sections of the Survey of Basic Skills for grades 6 and 12. The content specifications are organized under five general subcontent divisions: Sentences, Paragraphs, Morphology: Words and Word Building, Language Choices, and Spelling. Each of these subcontent divisions is divided into skill areas, with each skill area being divided into subskill components. Illustrative item categories, illustrative performance modes, and examples of test items are provided for each subskill component. (BW)
