Mills, Gladys H.
Focusing on state-mandated minimum competency testing programs, this annotated bibliography cites 200 items selected from more than 700. The Resource Catalog is intended for state education policy makers and therefore includes resource and study guides; legislative and board action; conference speeches, reports and proceedings; curriculum guides, journal articles and monographs. The diversity of interests, climates, expectations and results discovered to date are shown. Its listings cover the full range of the history, philosophy and rationales for minimum competency testing; legislation considered and enacted; planning and development of tests and remediation programs; research studied and suggested; and success and failures of minimum competency programs. Item availability is noted. Citations are arranged by title within each state; a separate section lists 50 items arranged by their contributing research organization. A directory of 150 contact persons precedes the separate author and title indexes. States represented are: Alabama, Alaska, Arizona, Arkansas, California, Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Hawaii, Idaho, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Vermont, Virginia, Washington, and Wyoming.
