The Test of Economic Literacy: St andardization in the U. K. Research Papers in Economics Education by David Whitehead( Book )

1 edition published in 1989 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Tests of achievement in economics have a variety of uses. Their principal role is to evaluate how successful students have been in learning economics on a particular course, either overall or in particular aspects of economics. They may also serve to provide evidence about the efficacy of specific teaching materials and/or strategies. Finally, they may be used as diagnostic instruments to assess the progress and difficulties of individual students. A standardized instrument for use in British schools is not currently available. The United States, on the other hand, has developed such tests for assessing the whole range of students, from primary through to university. This paper describes the process of trying out the U.S.-developed Test of Economic Literacy (tel) in the United Kingdom in May 1989. The development and norming of this test in the United States is discussed, and reservations are expressed about the use of multiple choice tests in general to measure economic understanding. Finally, the United Kingdom trials are reported, norming data are presented in 12 tables, and some comparisons are drawn with the U.S. data. A 9-item bibliography is included. (Jb)
Research on Attitude Change in Economics Students by David Whitehead( Book )

1 edition published in 1985 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Although 17 studies of attitude change among economics students in American secondary schools and colleges had been conducted by 1981, analysis of this research indicates that such studies are still in their infancy. Numbers of students participating in these studies ranged from 922 in 27 classes in Sewell's (1963) study of attitude change among secondary school economics students to the 66 students in a single college-level microeconomics class in Thompson's (1973) study. Three different kinds of attitude change were measured in these studies: (1) attitudes toward the subject itself; (2) movement of attitudes toward those held by professional economists; and (3) change in political attitudes along the liberal-radical/conservative continuum. Difficulties were found in many of the measures and the research designs used in these projects. These difficulties included the use of non-random samples and problems with such standardized tests as the Test of Economic Understanding. A particular problem noted was the short time period, usually a semester, in which attitude change was measured. The principal benefit of this research is as a source of hypotheses for further testing. (Is)
