Microcomputer Applications in Local Assessment Systems.
Harnisch, Delwyn L.; And Others
The capabilities and hardware requirements of four microcomputer software packages produced by the Office of Educational Testing, Research and Service at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign are described. These programs are: (1) the Scan-Tron Forms Analysis Package Version 2.0, an interface between an IBM-compatible and a Scan-Tron Forms Reader, which is capable of interpreting Scan-Tron answer forms; (2) the Test Analysis Package Version 2.0, which can perform statistical manipulations on student response data; (3) the Student-Problem Package Version 1.0, which can analyze item response patterns of student test data; and (4) the Item Bank Package, a comprehensive test preparation package that allows a teacher to create a pool of questions and combine them into tests. Annotated output from each program is included. (MES)
