AVAILABLE TESTS AND THEIR USE IN RESEARCH IN VOCATIONAL EDUCATION.
CRAWFORD, MARGARET L.
MEASUREMENT OF INDIVIDUAL TRAITS AND SEPARATE FACTORS OF INTELLIGENCE FOLLOWED BY EMPIRICAL COMBINATION OF THESE MEASURES INTO APTITUDE TEST BATTERIES SHOULD BE THE BASIS OF SELECTION OF STUDENTS FOR VOCATIONAL TRAINING. DURING THE PAST 14 YEARS, TRADE-TECHNICAL COLLEGE HAS DEVELOPED AND VALIDATED SUCH TEST BATTERIES FOR SOME 55 TRADE AND TECHNICAL CURRICULUMS, TESTING OVER 8,000 APPLICANTS ANNUALLY. THE STUDENT-SELECTION PROCESS INVOLVES BOTH THE TESTING PROGRAM AND AN APPLICANT-COUNSELOR-INSTRUCTOR INTERVIEW. VALIDITY STUDIES MADE ON THE APTITUDE TEST BATTERIES, AND THE TESTS FOUND TO BE PREDICTIVE, ARE PRESENTED IN TABULAR FORM. SIGNIFICANT CORRELATIONS ON APTITUDE TESTS AND INSTRUCTOR GRADES, MEANS AND STANDARD DEVIATIONS, AND OTHER PSYCHOMETRIC DATA ARE GIVEN. (HS)
