Strategies for Improving the Process of Educational Assessment. ERIC/AE Digest.
Matter, M. Kevin
This digest presents seven strategies that an assessment director may use to improve test administration practices. These strategies highlight clear communication, the responsibility of the Building Test Coordinator, and rewarding and reinforcing quality. The strategies are: (1) focusing on communication; (2) designating a building test coordinator; (3) meeting with all building test coordinators; (4) designing processes to reward quality; (5) using "quality" techniques; (6) designing goals, processes, and procedures with information, responsiveness, teamwork, standards, and other quality aspects in mind; and (7) working for continual improvement in processes.
