Assessing Learning Time at the Co-op Training Station. Special Publication Series No. 50.
Desy, Jeanne; And Others
This handbook is intended to guide cooperative education coordinators, teachers, inservice coordinators, and teacher educators in conducting time-use analyses. Chapter 1, an introduction to the guide, discusses the issue of evaluation in cooperative education, the benefits of time-use analyses, and common objections to time-use assessment. Examined in the second chapter are various applications of time-use analyses, including developing and modifying training plans, building time consciousness, targeting priorities, fostering detachment, increasing efficiency of placement at training stations, solving problems, forming and substantiating useful evaluations, and freeing up time. Chapter 3 deals with the phases in conducting a time-use study. Various aspects of using the results of time-use studies are discussed in chapter 4, including gathering additional information, evaluating the learning experience, identifying problem areas, modifying the training plan, and talking over the results. Two observation forms and five worksheets for use in conducting time-use analyses are appended, and numerous sample forms and checklists are included throughout the text of the handbook. (MN)
