State Minimum Competency Testing: A Survey.
Simmons, Robert M.
Information regarding state minimum competency testing programs was requested from the 50 state departments of education in the United States in the spring of 1979. The following questions were asked: (1) Do you have a testing program? (2) If you do, what tests are being used? (3) Do you have a testing program in the planning stages? (4) Are there publications describing your program? and (5) How can sample copies of your state's tests be acquired? Responses were received from 41 states; the sample tests and supporting materials which were contributed have been placed in the Curriculum Library, Clement C. Maxwell Library, Bridgewater State College, Bridgewater, Massachusetts. Twenty states reported existing competency testing programs, and 15 reported programs in the planning stage. (Eight pages of this document provide one-paragraph summaries of the testing programs and policies in the following states: Alabama, Alaska, Arizona, Arkansas, California, Colorado, Connecticut, Florida, Hawaii, Idaho, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Montana, Nebraska, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, North Carolina, North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, South Carolina, South Dakota, Texas, Utah, Vermont, Virginia, Washington, and Wyoming.)
