Excerpt from A Report on the Use of Some Standard Tests for 1916-17The following pages aim to present some of the findings arrived at through the application of standard tests and scales to the measurement of results in school subjects in Wisconsin for the school year 1916-17. It is in no way to be considered as a final report on the subjects included. Its conclusions must be regarded as tentative only.The work in standard tests and measurements instituted by the state department of education during the past year has as its primary aim the improvement of instruction. Its purpose is to discover, first, in objective terms, the degree of success achieved in the teaching of school subjects, and second, to point out possible means of improvement.To measure the achievement of pupils on a state-wide scale is an undertaking requiring no mean amount of labor. It is of course physically impossible for any one person to conduct standard tests in any large proportion of the schools of the state even in a few subjects. This has made it necessary to depend in no small measure upon the cooperation of others. Were all or even a large proportion of the teachers, principals, supervisors, and superintendents in the state trained in the supervision of instruction through standard tests and scales, it would be a relatively simple matter to ascertain the achievement of the children of the state in a number of subjects. In the absence of any such favorable conditions, no small portion of the time of the supervisor in charge of educational measurements has of necessity been devoted to the training of teachers, principals, supervisors, and superintendents in the field. To reach larger numbers in less time, this type of activity has been confined in the main to cities employing large numbers of teachers.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
