The ERIC Clearinghouse on Assessment and Evaluation, 1995 Annual Report.
ERIC Clearinghouse on Assessment and Evaluation, Washington, DC.
The Clearinghouse on Assessment and Evaluation of the Educational Resources Information Center (ERIC) is one of the 16 subject-oriented clearinghouses operated by the U.S. Department of Education, Office of Educational Research and Improvement. In its early years, ERIC was primarily an archive of education literature, but is has evolved into a more powerful and useful resource. This annual report details the 1995 activities of the Clearinghouse on Assessment and Evaluation (ERIC/AE). In 1995, the Clearinghouse emphasized network building through partnerships with other organizations to aid in the distribution of information and materials and to teach about ERIC, ERIC/AE, and the Internet. A key partner has been the Adjunct Test Collection Clearinghouse of the Educational Testing Service, which provides resumes of test descriptions in conjunction with ERIC/AE and the Buros Institute. In 1995, the Clearinghouse received more than 236,000 requests for information, distributed more than 85,000 ERIC digests, and more than 145,000 other full-text resources. ERIC/AE was also active in database building in 1995, submitting 812 documents for inclusion in the database component "Resources in Education" and 880 for the "Current Index to Journals in Education." ERIC/AE produced 11 Digests in 1995, and undertook 2 initiatives that focused on user outreach. In addition, ERIC/AE was quite active in the ERIC system and the AskERIC service. (SLD)
