The Development of a Series of Recommendations and Procedures Required in Administration of a Centralized Program of Occupational Competency Assessment.
Hoyman, Ronald D.
A study was conducted to provide information and representative examples necessary for the establishment of administrative procedures required in conducting a statewide program to assess the occupational competency of vocational-technical instructors. The data used in the study was obtained from a review of the current literature, samples of forms and procedures used in Pennsylvania's occupational competency assessment program, and interviews. From these a series of eight proposed recommendations and procedures for the administration of a centralized program were made. These are discussed under the following topic headings: (1) funding and proposal guidelines for a program of occupational competency assessment, (2) development of a centralized office for occupational competency assessment, (3) procedures for evaluation of the candidate in occupational competency assessment, (4) coordination and use of National Occupational Competency Testing Institute Examinations, (5) procedures for development of written occupational competency examinations, (6) procedures for development of performance occupational competency examinations, (7) procedures for test development and test examiner workshops, and (8) procedures for maintenance and improvement of occupational competency assessment. (Over one-half of the document is appended material related to the procedures discussed.) (JH)
