Developing Performance Tests for Classroom Evaluation.
Boyd, Joseph L., Jr.; Shimberg, Benjamin
Performance tests are considered significant instruments in facilitating the accurate assessment of an individual's overall competency. The importance of measuring performance and the advantages of using performance tests are discussed. Developing the test involves identifying the objectives to be measured, the task to be performed, and the time required for its performance. Once the procedures, directions, equipment, and scoring methods have been developed, they should be formalized through the preparation of three documents: Instructions to the Administrator, Instructions to the Examinees, and Rating and Scoring Form. Finally, the factors involved in grading the performance test are detailed, including a discussion of the relative importance of product and process evaluations. (PR)
