Guide for School Testing Programs.
Ward, Annie W., Ed.; And Others
Basically, test directors have four systemwide and building level responsibilities: (1) planning, administration and evaluation of standardized testing programs; (2) application of measurement and evaluation to school problems; (3) classroom testing and evaluation; and (4) external testing programs. In a series of brief memos, measurement and evaluation professionals give advice to the test director on: professional training; advisory committees; test planning; administration; scoring; and applications of test results to guidance and instruction, program evaluation, and teacher evaluation. Other chapters discuss the director's role in training teachers to develop their own tests and administering tests sponsored externally. A final chapter describes and evaluates common methods for reporting individual test results (percentile rank, expectancy tables); and group results (national norms, grade equivalents, criterion referenced tests, matrix sampling). Contributors are: Annie W. Ward; Joseph L. Mazur; Joan K. Bollenbacher; Albert H. Rouse; Gerald S. Hanna; Richard L. Poole; Jack Menne; Margaret E. Backman; and James H. Lawson. (CP)
