The early work on composite indices of development expressed “the need for a single number which, like GNP per head, can be quickly grasped and gives a rough indicatio n of ‘social. The use of standardized testing is supported by two fundamental assumptions, those being: (1) standardized tests are designed objectively, without bias and (2) standardized tests accurately assess a student’s academic knowledge. These assumptions have convinced school officials, to use test data, as the main criteria in determining aFile Size: KB.

These studies indicated that the test is a highly valid measure of spoken language ability. New extensive studies of construct-identification validity, including studies of age differences, subgroup performance, relationship to achievement, and confirmatory factor analysis of the test’s structure, were conducted. There are four major steps in achievement testing: (1) the preparation or selection of the test, (2) the administration of the test to the examinees, (3) the scoring of the answers given, and (4) the interpretation of the resulting scores.

The subtests can be administered independently of each other. An achievement test evaluates a learner's understanding of a specific course or study programme. It can be compared with proficiency tests, which measure a learner's level of language, diagnostic tests, which identify areas learners need to work on, and a prognostic test, which tries to predict a learner's ability to complete a course or take an exam/5(8).

Cognitive skills predict academic performance, so schools that improve academic performance might also improve cognitive skills. To investigate the impact schools have on both academic performance and cognitive skills, we related standardized achievement test scores to measures of cognitive skills in a large sample (N=1,) of 8 th-grade students attending traditional, Cited by: The History and Development of Achievement Tests SPED Cassandra Vredenburg May Assessments after s - Woodcock-Johnson Tests of Cognitive Abilities s - the Kaufman Adolescent and Adult Intelligence Test (KAIT), the Kaufman Brief Intelligence Test (K-BIT).

For diagnostic informa-tion about mode and strength of the achievement. This article throws light upon the four main steps of standardized test construction.

These steps and procedures help us to produce a valid, reliable and objective standardized test. The four main steps are: 1. Planning the Test 2. Preparing the Test 3.

Evaluating the Test. Planning of the test is the first important step in the test construction. Achievement tests are any type of test that measures a student's content knowledge. Some achievement tests are formal standardized tests while others are informal checks for understanding.Uses and Misuses of Standardized Achievement Tests In the spring of my first full year of teaching, I administered my first nationally standardized achievement test.

We set aside an hour, our high school's juniors took the test, and we received the score-reports the following fall. Achievement tests have always been part of school, but they have taken on more pronounced importance in American education with the passage of the No Child Left Behind ement tests are typically standardized and designed to measure subject and grade-level specific knowledge.
