Industrial Sewing Instructional Materials Evaluation, 7/1/81-6/15/82.
Brailsford, Amelia T.
A project was conducted to evaluate the industrial sewing instructional materials used in South Carolina secondary home economics programs to determine the extent to which they enabled students to achieve the cognitive performance skills and tasks incorporated in the curriculum. Procedures used in the evaluation were the following: (1) the first and second semester instructional materials and objectives were examined to identify cognitive skill requirements and performance tasks to be incorporated in the tests; (2) the test items were selected, reviewed, and verified; (3) the tests (pretests/posttests) were constructed, reviewed, and printed; (4) tests were to be administered at 22 test sites at various locations within the state to first year industrial sewing students; and (5) the results of the tests were to be analyzed and reported. (The document contains pretests/posttests for both the first and second semester industrial sewing curriculum materials. The first semester tests contain 49 multiple-choice questions; while the second semester industrial sewing tests contain 33 multiple-choice items and one matching exercise.) (KC)
