Summary

At one of a series of hearings on H.R. 6, the Elementary and Secondary Education Amendments of 1993, several experts discussed issues related to national assessment, assessment in Chapter 1, and state efforts to develop new forms of assessment. Eleanor Chelimsky, Assistant Comptroller General for Program Evaluation and Methodology of the General Accounting Office reports that respondents to a national survey of educators do not favor a national test for accountability purposes, and that many have reservations about the use of national examinations. Richard Mills, Commissioner of Education for Vermont, also discussed a national system of examinations and reviewed some assessment developments in the Vermont state program. Thomas A. Romberg, Director of the National Center for Research in Mathematical Sciences Education, indicates that a new assessment paradigm centered on children's learning is needed for Chapter 1 assessment and for all students. Sylvia T. Johnson, professor of statistics and research methodology at Howard University (Washington, D.C.), spoke about testing issues in relation to the proposed national assessment. Prepared statements of each of these witnesses and Lynn C. Woolsey, a Representative in Congress from California, follow the remarks. (SLD)
