Setting Achievement Levels on the 2014 NAEP TEL Assessment
In preparation for the development of the achievement levels for the 2014 NAEP Technology and Engineering Literacy (TEL) computer-based assessment at grade 8, the Governing Board wishes to identify those technical and policy issues which could have a substantive impact on the process of setting the achievement levels. Since this assessment is not only a computer-based test (CBT), but has been developed using evidence-centered design (ECD), the Board is particularly interested in having the various standard-setting elements reviewed, as well as gaining insights into other extant standard setting methodologies that are linked to ECD. This White Paper will articulate the various issues where further understanding and research may be helpful in achieving the long-standing NAEP standard-setting goals successfully and efficiently.
