Science Library of Test Items. Volume Twenty-Two. A Collection of Multiple Choice Test Items Relating Mainly to Skills.
New South Wales Dept. of Education, Sydney (Australia).
As one in a series of test item collections developed by the Assessment and Evaluation Unit of the Directorate of Studies, items are made available to teachers for the construction of unit tests or term examinations or as a basis for class discussion. Each collection was reviewed for content validity and reliability. The test items meet syllabus content and aims best suited to multiple choice questions, but teachers are meant to base the use of the test items on student ability and the particular program objectives in grades 7 through 10. Test items which relate to the skills in collecting and analyzing scientific information are presented. A knowledge of basic concepts in specific sciences is necessary in some items, but the questions are concerned particularly with the comprehension of scientific information in formats such as tables and graphs, the principles of conducting experiments, and the characteristics of scientific methodology. There are 202 test items. Answers are provided with each item, and drawings and graphs illustrate many questions. (CM)
