Criterion Referenced Evaluation for the Social Studies.
Shaw, Terry
The test is designed to assess upper elementary students' competency in process skills used in making decisions and solving problems in the social studies. The skills tested are those identified by the American Association for the Advancement of Science, and include observing, classifying, measuring, using numbers, using space and time relationships, communicating, predicting, inferring, manipulating variables, making operational definitions, forming hypotheses, interpreting data, and experimenting. Developed for use with sixth grade students, the test can also be used with seventh and eighth graders. Estimated readability level is 5.8 as measured by the Dale-Chall readability formula. The test is comprised of sixty multiple choice questions. The 51 objectives listed are accompanied by specific test items and the correct answer for each question. The test was used in the author's dissertation (1977) with 350 sixth grade students and was revised again to eliminate or clarify some items. (Author/CK)
