THE DEVELOPMENT OF ACHIEVEMENT MEASURES FOR TRADE AND TECHNICAL EDUCATION. PROGRESS REPORT NUMBER FIVE.
BALDWIN, THOMAS S.
TWO FORMS OF PAPER AND PENCIL ACHIEVEMENT TESTS WERE ASSEMBLED IN FOUR AND ONE FORM WAS ASSEMBLED IN THE OTHER OF THE FIVE TRADE CURRICULUM AREAS IN WHICH THE PROJECT IS DEVELOPING ACHIEVEMENT MEASURES. DESIGN AND PRODUCTION OF 10 OF THE 12 MEASURES OF PERFORMANCE FOR THE FIVE AREAS WERE COMPLETED. NINE HOURS OF TESTING TIME WERE REQUESTED OF THE PARTICIPATING INSTITUTIONS FOR ADMINISTERING THE PAPER AND PENCIL PERFORMANCE AND REFERENCE TESTS, AND TESTING WAS BEGUN. TESTS IN THE TWO TECHNOLOGIES INCLUDED IN THE PROJECT WERE ADMINISTERED TO 179 STUDENTS IN ELECTRONIC DATA PROCESSING AND TO 338 STUDENTS IN ELECTRONICS TECHNOLOGY IN 29 INSTITUTIONS IN FIVE DIFFERENT STATES. TO IDENTIFY THE FACTORS ISOLATED THROUGH FACTOR ANALYSIS, SEVERAL TESTS WHICH MEASURE RELATIVELY PURE FACTORS OF INTELLIGENCE ARE TO BE USED IN THE PROJECT TESTING PROGRAM. THESE WERE SELECTED FROM THE "KIT OF REFERENCE TESTS FOR COGNITIVE FACTORS", DESCRIBED IN THE APPENDIX. A DESCRIPTION OF EACH PERFORMANCE TEST IS INCLUDED. OTHER PROGRESS REPORTS ARE VT 003 205, VT 003 315, VT 003 699, AND VT 005 199. (HC)
