Child Care and Guidance Management and Services Programs. Child Care Worker. Performance Objectives and Criterion-Referenced Test Items.
Missouri Univ., Columbia. Instructional Materials Lab.
A minimum of two performance objectives have been developed and validated for each competency in the child care and guidance management and services programs of Missouri's Vocational Instructional Management System. These objectives, as well as one criterion-referenced test item per objective are presented in this publication. The 17 resources used for drafting the child care worker performance objectives and criterion-referenced test items are listed. Duty areas covered are as follows: providing a safe environment; providing a healthy environment; creating a learning environment; promoting physical development; facilitating cognitive development; communicating effectively; encouraging creativity; developing social skills; enhancing self-concepts; providing guidance; relating to families; maintaining the program; displaying professionalism; recognizing special needs; and developing leadership through Future Homemakers of America. Each performance objective is keyed to a duty area and task. The objective includes (1) a "given," i.e., something pre-supplied, such as a case-study, a piece of information, a problem; (2) a task; and (3) criteria for achievement of the objectives. The correct response to the criterion-referenced test item for each performance objective is indicated. (YLB)
