National Assessment of Educational Progress reconsidered : a new design for a new era by Samuel Messick( Book )

5 editions published in 1983 in English and held by 75 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report presents the conceptual framework and major features of the new design for the National Assessment of Educational Progress (naep) as conducted by Educational Testing Service beginning July 1983. It comprises three major chapters. The first chapter reviews the social and environmental changes that demand reconsideration of naep. The new design was formulated to address concerns focusing on performance standards, school effectiveness questions, and broad human resource issues, thereby improving NAEP's relevance to educational policy and practice. The second chapter discusses technical innovations now possible with proven modern techniques that greatly enhance the power and value of the collected data. Sampling by grade as well as by age permits estimates of performance and trends to be reported by both age and grade, thereby allowing direct links to state and local assessments, school practices, and educational policies. The third chapter illustrates ways the new design addresses multiple policy questions, communication with multiple audiences in an effective fashion, linkages to other data sources, enhancement and extension of naep services, and engagement of the public on the important educational issue of performance standards. Primary type of information provided by the report: Program Description (Operating Policies); Procedures (Conceptual). (Pn)

Personality organization in cognitive controls and intellectual abilities by Riley W Gardner( Book )

15 editions published between 1960 and 1968 in English and held by 34 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Psychological Issues publishes four monographs per volume. The study represented here is monograph #8 of Volume II, No. 4, 1960. The study described in this monograph was designed to explore relationships between two general classes of variables, cognitive control principles and intellectual abilities. Our purpose in this venture was twofold: (a) to illustrate that these two domains of cognitive organization have commonalities which can be conceptualized within a single set of principles of personality organization; and (b) to explore several hypotheses concerning relations between particular control principles and abilities
Validity of test interpretation and use by Samuel Messick( Book )

3 editions published in 1990 in English and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Validity is an integrated evaluative judgment of the degree to which empirical evidence and theoretical rationales support the adequacy and appropriateness of interpretations and actions based on test scores or other modes of assessment. The principles of validity apply not just to interpretive and action inferences derived from test scores as ordinarily conceived, but also to inferences based on any means of observing or documenting consistent behaviors or attributes. The key issues of test validity are the meaning, relevance, and utility of scores; the import or value implications of scores as a basis for action; and the functional worth of scores in terms of the social consequences of their use. For some time, test validity has been broken into content validity, predictive validity and concurrent criterion-related validity, and construct validity. The only form of validity neglected or bypassed in these traditional formulations is that bearing on the social consequences of test interpretation and use. Validity becomes a unified concept when it is recognized, or assured, that construct validation subsumes considerations of content, criteria, and consequences. Speaking of validity as a unified concept does not mean that it cannot be differentiated into facets to underscore particular issues. The construct validity of score meaning is the integrating force that unifies validity issues into a unitary concept. (Contains 1 table and 25 references.) (Sld)
