Adult Basic Literacy Assessment Kit.
Bowmar, Barbara; And Others
Intended as a resource for test construction, this kit provides educators with sample test items, checklists, and questionnaires to assess literacy skills of adult students. Items are keyed to skills in the Adult Basic Literacy Curriculum and Resource Guide (APL Guide) and divided into these skill areas: interpersonal, listening, speaking, viewing, reading, writing, handwriting, spelling, learning, and mathematics. An introduction outlines purposes of the kit, background and procedures, field testing, and materials within each section. Each section of test items, checklists, and questionnaires begins with instructional information covering the use of the assessments and followup. Assessments are keyed to APL Guide skills identified by number and brief description. The purpose of the various assessments and directions for their use are included. Some answer keys and scoring procedures are provided. The final section contains data on validity and reliability from the field testing of kit items. A bibliography is attached. (YLB)
