Background of the Project to Develop Guidelines and Standards for Educational Evaluation.
Madaus, George F.
In the final stages of drafting the 1974 revision of the Standards for Educational and Psychological Tests, it became clear to the committee members that the various drafts of the revisions emphasized the assessment of individuals, rather than program evaluation. Because of its concern, the committee decided to finish the present draft and to recommend the preparation of a companion volume of standards for program evaluation to the three sponsoring bodies--the American Psychological Association, the American Educational Research Association, and the National Council on Measurement in Education. This brief report outlines the contents of the memorandum proposing the companion volume, and describes the initial actions taken by the three sponsoring associations on the basis of solicited evaluations.
