Developing Student Achievement Measures. Working Paper No. 3.
Student assessment procedures used by the University of Mid-America/State University of Nebraska (UMA/SUN) for its first two televised courses, Introductory Psychology and Accounting I, are presented in this report. Included are descriptions of various experiments in producing test items, a report on the construction of tests from the items, and a presentation of the results of the first tests in terms of learner achievement and item statistics. Consideration is given to the validity of UMA/SUN's tests and to the needs of the future. It is concluded that the process of specifying objectives precisely and meaningfully to inform both the student and the test designer of what is being taught works well and should be continued.
