Improving Test Scores of Adults.
May, Richard D.
This guide is intended to help teachers administer tests to adult students so that the students achieve the highest possible test results. The booklet is divided into five sections. The first section reminds the teacher of the various differences in and needs of the adult learner, while the second section gives some tips on how to conduct a mini-course in study skills. In the third section, the various types of tests are identified (such as criterion-referenced tests and standardized tests) and reasons for their use in particular situations given. In the fourth section, the teacher is given tips for test administration, such as timing, atmosphere, physical constraints, good working conditions, and review for the test. The final section explains how to teach students to be test-wise. A checklist for test administrators is included. Sample lists of tests to be used with adults and a reference list complete the guide. (KC)
