Measuring Academic and Functional Competencies. Tier Locator and Mastery Tests.
This document contains tier locator and mastery tests, which form part of the Comprehensive Competencies Program (CCP) for adult and high school populations. The document begins with a detailed report on the nature and purposes of the tests. The report begins by discussing the structure of the tests, which parallels the structure of the CCP, and includes two components addressing academic and functional objectives, the objectives being divided into basic, intermediate, and advanced tiers. Other topics include the use of normed academic and functional tests as part of the CCP, test use, and documentation of the validity and reliability of the normed tests and justification of their use. The tests follow this report. They are useful for determining absolute and relative competency in the subsumed subject strands and, to a certain extent, the level of competency within each of these strands. The tests are sectioned by subject strands addressing related domains of competencies and are organized into four levels. Specifically, 12 tests are provided--6 for each of the two components of academic competencies and functional competencies. Tests within each component are further grouped into three tiers--basic, intermediate, and advanced. Two mastery tests are provided for each tier. The questions are multiple choice and may be scored by machine. (YLB)
