Standard Setting for Educational Decision Making: An Example.
Halpin, Gerald; Halpin, Glennelle
A process for setting standards that may be adapted by educators in a variety of settings for educational decision making is presented. In this process, which was used to set minimum standards in English for admission to a teacher education program at a large university, a number of trial standards were initially set utilizing a variety of methods, all of which were analyzed for fairness and feasibility for selecting effective teachers. After careful consideration of each of the trial standards and the percentage of norm group students who would be considered incompetent with each, minimum standards were recommended for both a standardized objective test and a writing sample.
