Design and Implementation of an Assessment Model for Students Entering Vocational Education Programs in the State of Colorado. Final Report.
Hartley, Nancy K.; And Others
A project was conducted to develop materials that could be utilized by teachers for informal assessment of the needs of students in vocational programs. Sixteen modules were developed to help teachers identify some of the areas in which students have special learning needs, clarify various levels of abilities, and distinguish the different learning styles of students. The sixteen modules cover the following vocational areas: welding, sheet metal, agriculture, graphic arts, woodworking, automotive, autobody, drafting, health occupations, world of work, food preparation, child care, distributive education, electricity, horticulture, and business and office occupations. The materials in the modules allow for informal assessment in three basic areas: academic skills, motor skills, and vocational interests and awareness. (LRA)
