Training Citizen Groups on Educational Testing Issues: A Trainer's Manual.
Anderson, Beverly L.; And Others
The purpose of this manual is to provide measurement specialists and educational evaluators with procedures for identifying the key testing issues of importance to citizen groups and aid them in adapting materials for use in workshops with these groups. The manual is divided into five sections to assist the trainer in developing all aspects of a successful workshop. These sections are: planning the workshop, sample workshop agendas, workshop presentation guides, sample letters, and resources. The training procedures outlined herein are intended to provide workshop suggestions for trainers who already have a strong background in testing. For example, presentation outlines are provided which contain only the main points to be covered on a topic. To use these outlines, trainers must be able to elaborate on each point. The manual provides a way of organizing important information about testing and stresses the main points to be covered. But, the trainer must bring his or her own knowledge of testing and measurement to the material to present sound workshops. (Author/RL)
