Internal Consistency of General Outcome Measures in Grades 1-8. Technical Report # 0915
Anderson, Daniel; Tindal, Gerald; Alonzo, Julie
Behavioral Research and Teaching
We developed alternate forms of a math test for use in both screening students at risk of failure and monitoring their progress over time. In this technical report, we present results of the screener, used in the fall of 2009. The 48-item test was aligned to the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM) Curriculum Focal Point Standards and was administered on a computer to all students from a single school district. The data were analyzed using Cronbach's alpha to reflect the internal consistency of the test forms. The results suggest sufficient consistency to use the scores in screening students within a district. (Contains 4 tables and 1 footnote.)
