An Empirical Examination of the Permanence of Performance and Response Patterns Generated by a CRM-Reading Produced by Expert Judgment.
Hess, Richard Wayne
Stability of performance on a criterion referenced reading test was examined for 413 students in grades one through six. The test, which measures 367 behavioral reading objectives, was administered twice to each student, with an interval of at least three weeks between the first and second administrations. Three statistical indices of permanence of performance were examined in relation to the information provided to the user of the criterion referenced test and in relation to the technical properties of each objective. Cochran's Q was examined in relation to the existence or nonexistence of response patterns within the 77 sets of related objectives on the test. The study adds technical information pertinent to the field of criterion referenced measurement in general and to criterion referenced reading tests developed by "expert judgment" in particular.
