Evaluation, Testing and Learning Assistance.
Enright, Gwyn
The resurgence of testing and the significance of this trend to learning assistance facilitators and developmental educators are discussed. This increase in testing, particularly as it manifests itself on college and university campuses, reflects a shift of emphasis in testing, from measuring aptitude to measuring the effect of instruction. Various direct and indirect forms of measurement are discussed; and new testing modes, including computer-assisted testing, are covered. The relation between the test taker and the test and the use of tests and other forms of assessment are briefly outlined. Finally, evaluating test design for lucidity, meaningfulness, economy, and fairness is promoted; and the role of the learning assistance facilitators and developmental educators in the evaluation of testing is discussed.
