Computer Assisted Job Skill Evaluation (CAJSE). 1994-1995.
Tarrant County Junior Coll. District, Ft. Worth, TX.
The Computer-Assisted Job Skill Evaluation (CAJSE) project was conducted to develop an evaluation software instrument that could be used in career and technical education programs throughout Texas to provide immediate performance evaluations in vocational-technical and career education. Ten instructors selected from vocational-technical education programs at Tarrant County Junior College attended workshops explaining the principles of software development. They then developed computer-assisted job skills evaluation software for their courses by converting existing evaluation tools into a job skills evaluation program called the Intelligent Questionnaire with the WriteOne. The instructors then used the CAJSE system in their courses and evaluated its effectiveness in clinical and laboratory settings. The effectiveness of the CAJSE project was evaluated by having 77 vocational-technical students use and rate the software. A factor analysis of the students' responses was performed. The CAJSE software was concluded to promote consistent job skill evaluation, provide comprehensive corrective feedback, produce student skills proficiency, and permit efficient use of instructional time. (Appendixes constituting approximately 75% of this document contain a 12-chapter manual explaining how to use the Intelligent Questionnaire with the WriteOne and examples of CAJSE templates and completed CAJSE evaluations.)
