THE DEVELOPMENT OF ACHIEVEMENT MEASURES FOR TRADE AND TECHNICAL EDUCATION. PROGRESS REPORT NUMBER TWO.
North Carolina State Univ., Raleigh.
THE 11 INSTITUTIONS AGREEING TO PARTICIPATE IN THE STUDY TO DISCOVER MORE ADEQUATE WAYS OF MEASURING IMPORTANT TACTILE-KINESTHETIC MODALITIES WERE VISITED, AND THE OPERATING PROCEDURES AND INFORMATION ON WHAT WOULD BE EXPECTED OF EACH INSTITUTION WERE OUTLINED. APPROXIMATELY 20 INSTRUCTORS BEGAN WORK ON A DETAILED CURRICULUM ANALYSIS IN THEIR RESPECTIVE AREAS AND ON THE DEVELOPMENT OF ITEMS FROM WHICH A PRELIMINARY FORM OF AN EXAMINATION WILL BE MADE. A PRELIMINARY FORM OF A COMPREHENSIVE ELECTRONICS TECHNOLOGY EXAMINATION AND RESULTS FROM 41 STUDENTS WHO TOOK THE EXAMINATION 2 YEARS AGO WERE MADE AVAILABLE BY THE CURRICULUM LABORATORY, NORTH CAROLINA DEPARTMENT OF COMMUNITY COLLEGES.
