Test Use Project. Annual Report.
Choppin, Bruce H.; And Others
One of the two major phases of the Test Use Project of the Center for the Study of Evalaution (CSE) is discussed; that is, the collection and analyses of survey data from a national sample of teachers and principals representing the targeted grades/schools. Some historical background influencing that phase of the project is provided. The findings emanating from CSE's 1978 small-scale study of testing--which in some ways was the primary inception for the study--are described. The findings of fieldwork preceding the national survey are discussed and principal findings of the survey are presented. The survey included questions about the teacher's professional background, classroom characteristics, use of resources, district assistance, district training and college courses, district uses of assessment information, district reporting of test results, teacher attitude toward tests and test-related issues, and teacher uses of assessment results.
