EPV 8 Describe and explain basic assessment concepts. The teacher make sure in advanced that she explains what is going to be on the test like multiple choice, what’s going to be on each page, and makes sure to make clear what I to be expected of the student. Norm reference tests are usually multiple-choice tests so they can construct a norm that is result of testing about 200,000 kids in the country. This is chosen to address all demographics such as rich, poor, white, black, ECT. The norm is usually 50%. All individuals’ scores are related to the national norm example being 75% means that you are 25% better than the norm. Weakness is that it is all relative. Your child maybe 75 th , but that might mean that no one is doing good or that ever is doing better. The reason for criterion reference tests is to compare performance to a well reference domain of behavior and knowledge for example ice skating. Te range I from zero being no performance and the highest being conspicuous excellence. Problem for education is there is no well specified range of performance domains in such things as spelling, math, reading, and more. In the video the teacher read the directions to the test.
