Panitz, Adolf; Olivo, C. Thomas
Much effort has been directed toward the evaluation of human characteristics and abilities. This handbook is an outgrowth of an extensive study of occupational competency testing and is intended to assist in the development, administration and evaluation of written and performance tests wherever occupational competency evaluation may be fundamental to employment, upgrading or promotion. This report: (1) provides the historical background and philosophical concepts of occupational competency testing, (2) outlines test development procedures, (3) discusses test administration, (4) considers the evaluation of occupational competency tests and test results, and (5) presents findings concerning national occupational competency testing. This is an outgrowth of the report on "The state of the art" and the experiences gained in pilot testing of two tests. List of resources, references and a bibliography complement this report. Related documents are available as ED 051 378, and VT 014 261 in this issue. (GEB)
