Develop and Validate a Course Outline and Modules for the Evaluation Course for Vocational Education. Final Report.
A project is described which developed a course outline, competencies, and learning modules for a course in classroom evaluation which will be offered as a part of the Wisconsin Vocational, Technical, and Adult Education (VTAE) Spiral Curriculum designed to meet VTAE teacher certification requirements. The procedures outlined involved an advisory committee of vocational teachers, administrators, Wisconsin Board of VTAE staff, students, and teacher educators in identifying the evaluation competencies VTAE teachers need and evaluating the materials developed. A major portion of the report is devoted to the appended course outline and learning modules. The course outline contains a brief description, objectives, procedures, and general references; availability is given for the textbook and six Performance Based Teacher Education (PBTE) Modules required for use with these materials. Topics covered in the seven units are developing evaluation criteria, assessing student performance using teacher constructed instruments, planning and administering tests, processing and utilizing evaluation information, competency based evaluation, evaluating instructional effectiveness, and standardized and commercial evaluation devices. Each unit consists of one to four modules which contain introductory statements, competencies and objectives, references, learning experiences, and performance assessment tests. Course instructors are encouraged to choose their preferred delivery systems. (YLB)
