Evaluation of Pupil Achievement.
Ediger, Marlow
Because not all approaches to evaluating pupil achievement evaluate in the same facets of development, many methods are necessary to assess learner achievement in the different curriculum areas of the elementary school. This paper examines methods of evaluating pupil achievement, including: work samples, checklists, rating scales, sociometric devices, teacher-pupil conferences, parent-teacher conferences, diary entries, anecdotal records, teacher-made tests (essay items, true-false items, multiple-choice items, matching items, completion items), and standardized tests. Other techniques related to pupil evaluation are self-evaluation by teachers, and formative and summative evaluation. Feedback from evaluation results need to be utilized to improve the curriculum. Improved specific objectives, learning activities, and appraised procedures selected by teachers might be a relevant end result. (LMO)
