A set of short tests aimed at measuring student mastery of specific skills in the natural sciences are presented with a description of the mastery program's purposes, development, and methods. Mastery learning, criterion-referenced testing, and the scope of skills to be tested are defined. Each of the multiple choice tests for grades 7 through 10 are aimed at a single skill. A test construction guide and instructions for administering the tests are included with a list of the tests available in the program. Among the skills tested are identification, comprehension of tables and graphs, measurements, and calculations. The appendices include answer keys, a sample answer sheet, and inspection copies of 26 tests with scope notes and scoring information. (CM)
