Assessment Instruments for Educational Linking Agent Training: A Preliminary Compendium.
Pool, Betty Jo; Hood, Paul D.
In order to provide linking agent trainers with some assistance in the area of personnel and training assessment, a search for suitable instruments was undertaken. This compendium and the attached instrumentation are the results of this search. Very few instruments were found that focus directly on linking agent assessment. With few exceptions, most of the instruments were designed for specific, often one-time, purposes. Linking agent assessment is primitive. Would-be users of assessment instruments should not expect to find much that is immediately usable here. Still, some of the available instruments can be adapted to fit linking agent training situations. Before the instruments are examined, the types of uses and methods that could be employed in linking agent assessment are reviewed. The instruments included are Baker's School Counselor Attitudes Inventory; Davis's Linker Performance Inventory; Creighton's Professional Preference Census; Hood's and Blackwell's Development, Dissemination, and Evaluation Diagnostic Instrument; and the American Society for Training and Development questionnaire "What Do Training and Development Professionals Really Do?"
