Metric Education Evaluation Package.
Kansky, Bob; And Others
This document was developed out of a need for a complete, carefully designed set of evaluation instruments and procedures that might be applied in metric inservice programs across the nation. Components of this package were prepared in such a way as to permit local adaptation to the evaluation of a broad spectrum of metric education activities. The document contains three instruments for measuring content knowledge of The Systeme International d'Unites (SI) (two versions of a multiple-choice test and one form of a laboratory test), an instrument for measuring attitudes toward United States adoption of SI, and an opinionaire for measuring participants' perceptions regarding the effectiveness of a metric education activity. The last of these instruments contains items whose wording is directed to a teacher audience; deletion of selected items would result in a more general instrument. Each instrument is accompanied by information regarding its construction, modification, use, and analysis. With regard to analysis, the package contains listings of computer programs in BASIC specific to the scoring of each instrument and the analysis of the results obtained. (MP)
