Minimal Competency Measurement Conference: Summary Report.
On March 11 and 12, 1976, the National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP), a project of the Education Commission of the States (ECS), and the Clearinghouse for Applied Performance Testing (CAPT), a project of the Northwest Regional Educational Laboratory (NWREL), cohosted a Minimal Competency Measurement Conference in Denver, Colorado. Representatives of 32 states, the District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico attended. The conference provided a forum to discuss minimal competency in its broadest sense. The scope of the meetings was loosely defined in order to maximize participant output. Hosts and participants alike were asked to share their thinking on a variety of complex issues that relate to minimal competency. Presented here is a brief summary of the conference proceedings--the topics that were discussed, the information that was shared, and the questions that were raised.
