Summary
Demonstrates use of standard error, comparison of scores with test norms in interpretation of test scores, and use of percentile bands rather than points. | Presents a lecture by Dr. Scarvia B. Anderson, who demonstrates two important principles of test interpretation--(1) any test score is only an estimate of a student's ability, and (2) percentages are meaningful only if the characteristics of the group on which norms are based are known. Golf pro Ernie Pognotta helps to show similarities in basic principles of measurement in golf and in test scores. Dr. Anderson emphasizes that meaning comes from comparison in interpreting test scores.
