Final Report of an Expansion of a Model for Development of Proficiency/Equivalency Tests for Clinical Laboratory Personnel, July 1, 1980-June 30, 1981.
New Jersey Coll. of Medicine and Dentistry, Newark. School of Allied Health Professions.
A project was conducted to expand a previously developed model for developing proficiency/equivalency tests to evaluate previously acquired knowledge and skill competencies in the areas of clinical microbiology and clinical hematology. Designed for a target group consisting of on-the-job trainees, military personnel, and medical laboratory technicians at the associate degree level, the tests measured competencies already acheived as a prerequisite for placement in an existing medical technology baccalaureate-level program. Project activities included compiling and evaluating level statements of competencies and objectives for clinical microbiology personnel, writing and compiling test questions based on these competencies, and revision and renorming of clinical hematology examinations and will include the norming of the microbiology exam in spring 1982. The design and evaluation phases of the project have been completed successfully, and the dissemination phase is still on-going. (Appended to the report are the content grids, examination forms, and test keys of the microbiology and hematology examinations, a proctor's manual and other procedural forms, and statistical data from the hematology renorming.)
