A National Effort of Experience Evaluation by Occupational Competency Examinations.
Panitz, A.
Without objective measures of occupational competence, it is not possible to ascertain whether the prospective teacher possesses the broadly-based level of competence essential for effective teaching. Each occupation contains elements which distinguish the competent tradesman (the author identifies seven). Assurance is required that the level and range of occupational competence of the future teacher is adequate to meet youth and adult training needs, and there is convincing evidence that measures beyond the paper and pencil test are needed to evaluate the skill phase of competence. A National Occupational Competency Testing Institute (NOCTI) has been established to assure effective continuing service to vocational education; the Educational Testing Service will administer and score the NOCTI examinations nationally, report the test results, carry on research, and develop additional tests. (The test development procedure, an evaluation of test results, a discussion of test use, and a description of the contents of an examination packet are included briefly in the document.) (AJ)
