The testing and grading of students by Ohmer Milton( Book )

11 editions published between 1976 and 1981 in English and held by 495 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Although over 100 million tests are administered each year and testing is a subject of increasing contention among students, faculty members remain diffident. A better understanding of the purpose and structure of evaluating mechanisms is a prerequisite for widespread improvement. Teachers must understand what factors play a part in measuring learning. If learning goals and course objectives are properly defined, they will be essential ingredients of success for student and teacher alike. Since multiple-choice and essay tests are most commonly used in college today, a thorough analysis of their structure and purpose is undertaken to clarify underlying principles of evaluation as a learning tool. Letter grading, the most commonly accepted form of evaluation, is particularly susceptible to the charge of insufficient feedback to the student. A more fundamental grasp of the options for academic measurement is the most direct route to improved grading. Growing external pressures are forcing faculty to reexamine student evaluation. The use of external examiners and the establishment of effective campus grievance arrangements are only two of the ways recommended to improve an increasingly bothersome issue in academic life. (Lbh)
Will that be on the final!? by Ohmer Milton( Book )

3 editions published in 1982 in English and held by 143 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Educators are called upon to improve the quality of classroom tests to enhance the learning of content. Less faculty concern for tests than for other features of instruction, compounded by a lack of knowing how to assess different levels of learning with test questions that measure complex processes, appear to generate poor quality classroom tests. Research indicates that publisher supplied items and many instructors' tests include mostly recall items requiring students to memorize details and to study little else. This results in a deficiency of analytical skills (the higher order processes of application and evaluation) and a decrease in content learning. (Pn)

Survey of Faculty Views on Student Participation in Decision Making. Final Report by Ohmer Milton( Book )

1 edition published in 1968 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Many students seek and many administrators have called for greater student involvement in important academic decision making. And because faculty members, who control most academic policies and procedures, have remained strangely silent about such matters, it was decided to investigate, in a more detailed and systematic fashion than had been done previously, their attitudes toward student participation in determining cogent campus policies. At the same time, an effort was made to obtain data that might indirectly reflect the conventionality of faculty thinking about approaches to teaching and learning. A randomly selected sample of 200 faculty members was interviewed at 4 colleges and 2 universities. "Yes", "No", or "Don't know" answers to questions regarding specific areas of student participation (E.G., curriculum planning) could be qualified. There was general agreement that students should participate extensively in matters of student discipline, but not in the affairs of a legal governing board. They should be encouraged to complete evaluative types of questionnaires on teachers, but the results should be seen only by the teacher concerned. In other areas, a "Yes" vote meant only that student ideas should be heard, but the means for obtaining their views is left unclear. This study has been highly limited in its sampling of institutions, and more land-grant colleges and universities should be sampled via mailed questionnaires. (Js)
