Electricity Test Construction Project [with Forms A, B, and C].
Todd, Amelia B.
An achievement test for the secondary school vocational electricity programs in South Carolina was constructed by a research coordinating unit (RCU) project. A trade and industrial supervisor and consultant, three electricity instructors, and four industry representatives comprised an advisory committee that participated in its development. Three test forms were prepared and field tested in 27 Electricity I (340 students) and 27 Electricity II (242 students) classrooms. Test analysis findings indicated sufficiently high reliability indices to justify test use in classrooms. Twenty-seven items were tagged as needing further examination to determine whether they should be revised or eliminated from the item bank. In addition to a two-page report, the three test forms are provided. Form A contains 96 items; form B has 102 items; and form C has 96 items. These types of test items are included in the test forms: matching, true-false (statements with accompanying conditions), and multiple choice. (YLB)
