The central assumption in domain-referenced testing (DRT), as presented in this book, is that a domain may be determined which adequately represents a particular universe of knowledge.

After a domain has been established, the technological and practical problem of using domain-referenced testing must be solved.

This book contains a collection of twelve short chapters. After reading this article you will learn about: 1. Concept of Evaluation 2. Definition of Evaluation 3. Purposes and Functions 6. Need and Importance.

In every walk of life the process of evaluation takes place in one or the other form. If the evaluation process is eliminated from human life then perhaps the aim of life may be lost.

These classes are as follows: 1. A domain of educational goals, i.e., a set of objectives. Lundin, S. Domain- Referenced Curriculum Evaluation: A Technical Handbook and a Case Study from the MINNEMAST Domain-referenced curriculum evaluation book (CSE Monograph Series in Evalua-tion, No.

In S. Shye (Ed.), Theory Construction and Data. In this paper we have tried to describe the research pertinent to the activity of formative evaluation. While the number of good examples of formative evaluation is expanding, the level of research into the process is relatively limited.

Perhaps a compromise to the difficult task of accumulating research data on formative evaluation might be by: From Domain-Referenced Curriculum Evaluation to Selection of Educational Microcomputer Software. Implications of New Technology for Social Policy Robert Hayes.

Domain-Referenced Interpretation Assessment results are interpreted in terms of a relevant and clearly defined set of related tasks (called a domain).

Meaning is similar to criterion-referenced interpretation but the term is less used, even though it is a more descriptive term.

Special education has criticized many norm-referenced tests for their lack of demonstrated reliability with exceptional populations.

Current advocacy of using criterion-referenced tests with handicapped persons has failed to consider the lack of empirical data on their by: 9. A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text.

In this lesson, we'll look at two major types of tests that are scored differently from each other: norm-referenced and criterion-referenced tests. Measurement Ricki is.

Discuss the role of criterion referenced tests and norm referenced tests in the teaching and learning process Introduction According to Van der Linden (), the rise of new learning strategies has changed the meaning of measurement in education and made new demands on the construction, scoring, and analysis of educational tests.

Assessment in Support of Instruction and Learning is the summary of a National Research Council workshop convened to examine the gap between external and classroom assessment. This report discusses issues associated with designing an assessment system that meets the demands of public accountability and, at the same time, improves the quality of the education.
