Sample text

X is an abbreviation for an individual raw score. − X represents the mean of the scores. The bar ‘−’ as it is known, over the X is shorthand for the arithmetic mean. In this case the mean of all the X or raw scores. Then there is the Greek letter sigma Σ. This tells us to add up or sum all the numbers to its immediate right, in this case all the raw scores minus their mean score. Finally, N is the total number of scores that you have. Let’s put the formula back together and work out an example.

If we take this number we can be sure that 68 per cent of the time our population mean will lie within those ± bounds. As error in extreme cases could be theoretically infinite we can never be 100 per cent sure that we have the bounds wide enough to account for all eventualities. That is why we have what are called Confidence Limits. The confidence level is 68 per cent if you use just one SEmean it means our range will contain our ‘error free mean’ 68 times in every 100 times we do the calculation or, looking at it another way, 32 per cent of the time our ‘error free mean’ will fall outside this range.

The format of the test, instructions and materials are also appropriate for a test of oral reading and there are no problematic cultural references. Pupils respond orally by reading a passage aloud and then answering standard comprehension questions asked by the test administrator. This is appropriate for a test of oral reading. Provision is made in the instructions for helping test takers deal with words in the narratives that they may be unfamiliar with. The test user is allowed to correct errors or to supply words which the pupil does not know.
