Arias, Beatriz; And Others
The purpose of this part of the multimethod Head Start bilingual/bicultural curriculum evaluation (Juarez and Associates 1978), is to familiarize curriculum model developers with test and item analysis procedures used to select and recommend tests for evaluating curriculum models. Considerations and procedures (such as screening, and comparing and determining best fit between tests and programs) used in choosing tests are indicated. Recommendations for measures to be included in the Head Start curriculum model assessment battery are made and test administration guides are provided. Materials related to the test selection effort, including lists of the curriculum models' characteristics, cross-model behaviors, sources of information, a list of language measures, test match forms, results of item analysis, and reviews of recommended and non-recommended measures are appended.
