DEVELOPMENT AND UTILIZATION OF A NATIONAL VOCATIONAL-TECHNICAL SCHOOL ACHIEVEMENT TESTING PROGRAM USING THE PRINTING TRADES AS A PILOT AREA. FINAL REPORT.
MCFADDEN, DENNIS
THE PURPOSE OF THIS PILOT PROJECT WAS TO DEVELOP AND VALIDATE TESTS TO ASSESS STUDENT ACHIEVEMENT IN TWELFTH GRADE VOCATIONAL PRINTING PROGRAMS. THE OHIO PRINTING ACHIEVEMENT TEST AND A NEW TEST DEVELOPED BY THE PROJECT, THE OHIO PRINTING PERFORMANCE TEST, WERE ADMINISTERED TO A SAMPLE OF STUDENTS WHO WERE NEARING COMPLETION OF THE 4-YEAR VOCATIONAL PRINTING COURSE IN 77 HIGH SCHOOLS IN 29 STATES AND THE DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA, AND NATIONAL NORMS WERE ESTABLISHED. A JOB PERFORMANCE CRITERION MEASURE WAS DEVELOPED WITH WHICH TO VALIDATE THE TWO ACHIEVEMENT MEASURES, AND MEASURES OF JOB PERFORMANCE WERE OBTAINED FROM THE JOB SUPERVISORS OF GRADUATES WHO HAD PARTICIPATED IN THE NORMING ADMINISTRATION. IT WAS CONCLUDED THAT THE THREE TESTS WERE VALID AND RELIABLE AND THAT VOCATIONAL GRADUATES WHO ENTERED PRINTING OCCUPATIONS HAD SIGNIFICANTLY GREATER MEAN LEVEL OF ACHIEVEMENT THAN THE TOTAL NORM GROUP. A LIST OF REFERENCES, A SUGGESTED PRINTING COURSE OUTLINE, THE JOB PERFORMANCE RATING SCALE, A LIST OF PARTICIPATING SCHOOLS, AND MULTIPLE REGRESSION ANALYSIS TABLES ARE INCLUDED. (EM)
