Summary

This battery of tests was developed to measure the general educational development of students in secondary schools in israel. By developing an instrument that measured generalized skills and ability to use information rather than a strict achievement test, it was hoped that the instrument could be used for both guidance purposes and the improvement of evaluation methods. The battery consists of six tests-(1) mathematics, (2) science, (3) reading comprehension-literature, (4) reading comprehension-social studies, (5) social studies-general information, and (6) English language. Reliability data included intercorrelations of the subtest and correlations of the subtest with the total test score. The reliability of the total score exceeded .90 and met acceptable standards. Contest validity was established by the judgment of teachers, schools supervisors, and experts on the subject matter, while correlations between test score and grade-point average were used to determine concurrent validity. However, validity with respect to prediction of academic achievement, success in school, and effectiveness of the tests for treatment and placement purposes still requires a follow-up study. The norms were based on a sample of classes, grades nine and 10, in accredited academic high schools. A more detailed discussion of the tests is given in hebrew. (cg)
