a.high-stakes testing.

b.construct validity.

Use the following information for items 100-102.


A group of kindergarten students whose parents are migrant farm workers from Mexico and whose English-language skills are just developing are given a nationally normed standardized readiness test. The test uses a multiple-choice format, and the teachers have the students practice with multiple-choice items. The results of the test will be used to determine if the students will be retained in kindergarten or will be promoted to the first grade.

Several of the items on the test are designed to measure the students’ basic skills. For example, one item asks the students to identify the item that begins with the long vowel i, and students were shown pictures of a clothes iron, a shovel, a power drill, and a lawn mower as choices. The correct answer was the iron, since it begins with i.  Many of the children choose the shovel as an answer, since it is the only item on the list with which they are familiar.

a.It is a criterion-referenced test.

c.It is an aptitude test.

d.It is an intelligence test.


  101.With respect to the test itself, which of the following is the most valid conclusion?

a.Bias in content exists in the test, since it requires background knowledge the students lacked.

c.Bias in format exists, since multiple-choice tests should not be used with kindergarten students.

d.The test is not biased, since it has been nationally normed.


  102.Which of the following is the best analysis of the fact that the test will determine whether or not the students will be allowed to enter the first grade?

a.The test is not biased, since it is an objective measure of the children’s performance.

b.Bias in reliability exists, because the teachers had the students practice with the test format.

c.Bias in test use exists, since the children’s promotion depends on this single instrument.

d.Bias in test format exists because multiple-choice tests should not be used with kindergarten students.
