The Evaluation of a Model for the Assessment of Class Progress.
Upp, Caroline M.; Barcikowski, Robert S.
Demands for more complete information on educational programs have emanated from national, state and local sources. Their focus is on the processes that are occurring in individual classrooms. The information that is collected to provide insight into educational programs is customarily summative in nature, answering, for example, questions regarding student progress toward accomplishment of objectives. Here, a model is evaluated which allows that decisions be made for the benefit of the students still enrolled in classes, not merely the students of future classes. This model, the B-model, is concerned with cognitive and affective outcomes. Results show that this model provides researchers and school administrators with a sensitive measurement approach, which is economical in terms of teacher/student time, with which to measure student progress and, perhaps, teacher effectiveness throughout the school year.
