THE DEVELOPMENT OF ACHIEVEMENT MEASURES FOR TRADE AND TECHNICAL EDUCATION. PROGRESS REPORT NUMBER FOUR.
BALDWIN, THOMAS S.
DURING THE FIRST YEAR OF THE PROJECT, TO DISCOVER MORE ADEQUATE WAYS OF MEASURING IMPORTANT TACTILE-KINESTHETIC MODALITIES, APPROXIMATELY 40 INSTRUCTORS WITHIN THE NORTH CAROLINA DEPARTMENT OF COMMUNITY COLLEGES AND TECHNICAL INSTITUTES, WORKING WITH PROJECT STAFF MEMBERS, COMPLETED A CURRICULUM ANALYSIS FOR THE TECHNICAL OR TRADE SPECIALITY IN EACH OF THE SEVEN AREAS FOR WHICH TESTS ARE BEING DEVELOPED AND COMPILED A POOL OF FROM 500 TO 800 TEST ITEMS FOR EACH CURRICULUM. THESE ITEMS WERE CONSTRUCTED TO REPRESENT EACH TOPIC INTO WHICH EACH CURRICULUM HAD BEEN DIVIDED, AND THE 4 LEVELS OF CLASSIFYING EDUCATIONAL OBJECTIVES WHICH WERE ACCEPTED BY THE PROJECT STAFF--KNOWLEDGE, UNDERSTANDING, AND TWO LEVELS OF APPLICATION. PAPER AND PENCIL TESTS WERE COMPLETED IN ELECTRONICS TECHNOLOGY AND ELECTRONICS DATA PROCESSING TECHNOLOGY. TWO ANALOGOUS FORMS OF THE TEST IN EACH TECHNICAL AREA WERE DEVELOPED, AND ITEM AND FACTOR ANALYSES WILL DETERMINE THE MOST APPROPRIATE ITEMS FOR EACH FORM OF THE FINAL TESTS. PAPER AND PENCIL TESTS AND PERFORMANCE TESTS IN THE OTHER FIVE AREAS ARE IN THE PROCESS OF DEVELOPMENT. STANDARDIZED DATA FROM STUDENT RECORDS IS TO BE STUDIED TO DETERMINE ITS RELATIONSHIP TO ANY OF THE FACTORS OF ACHIEVEMENT IDENTIFIED THROUGH FACTOR ANALYSES. AN EXPERIMENTAL SECTION ESTABLISHED WITHIN THE PROJECT WILL CONDUCT BASIC INVESTIGATIONS CONCERNING THE AUDITORY, VISUAL, KINESTHETIC, AND OLFACTORY SENSES. THIRTY INSTITUTIONS, REPRESENTING OVER 95 PERCENT OF THE TOTAL NORTH CAROLINA ENROLLMENT IN EACH OF THE SEVEN AREAS, HAVE AGREED TO PARTICIPATE IN THE PROJECT. THE PROJECT HAS BEEN COMPLETELY STAFFED, AN ADVISORY COMMITTEE HAS BEEN FORMED, AND SEVERAL NATIONALLY KNOWN CONSULTANTS HAVE BEEN SECURED FOR THE PROJECT. OTHER PROGRESS REPORTS ARE VT 003 315, VT 003 699, VT 005 199, AND VT 005 200. (HC)
