Social Studies Evaluation Sourcebook.
Superka, Douglas P.; And Others
This sourcebook is a resource guide to help teachers, evaluation specialists, district coordinators, and supervisors in locating and selecting instruments to evaluate various aspects of social studies programs from kindergarten through grade 12. The bulk of the sourcebook comprises analyses of 291 evaluation instruments applicable to social studies education. The instruments include general social studies achievement tests and specific knowledge tests in United States history, world history, political science, and economics. Instrument analyses are also provided in areas of critical thinking skills, student attitudes, interpersonal skills, self-concept, personality, values clarification, moral development, classroom climate, curriculum evaluation, and teacher evaluation. Each analysis provides information on where and how to order the instrument, publication date, developer, cost, grade level, time required, subject and respondent, variables measured, format, scoring and interpretation, reliability and validity data, and other reviews or evaluations of the instrument. The analyses emphasize usability and descriptive characteristics rather than technical aspects such as reliability and validity. A title index, publisher cross-reference, and grade-level cross-reference are included. (Author/AV)
