Basic Skills Assessment Program. Parent Pamphlet, Teacher Pamphlet, and Administrator Pamphlet.
Dependents Schools (DOD), Washington, DC.
In the spring of 1980, the Department of Defense Dependents Schools (DODDS) completed its second year of basic skills testing. During the first year, the Basic Skills Assessment Program tested students' math skills in grades 7 and 11, and reading and language skills in grades 9 and 11. During the second year, the testing program was expanded to include the elementary grades. Basic skills performance in reading, math, and language was assessed in grades 3 and 11, math skills in grades 5 and 7, and reading and language skills in grades 4, 6, and 9. One of the major goals of the Basic Skills Assessment Program is to provide useful test data for program evaluation as well as individual diagnosis. These pamphlets are designed to inform parents, teachers, and administrators about the DODDS Basic Skills Assessment Program. Instructional goals for reading development, language arts, and mathematics are included at the various grade levels and measurement terms are defined. The administrator's pamphlet is designed to help him or her integrate results of the assessment with other input on student performance and program effectiveness, and to use these results to make instructional and curricular decisions.
