Developing Criterion Measures for Career Path Modules.
Alvir, Howard P.
A HOW-to-do-it kit for educatorsinterested in measuring career path development by utilizing criterion measures with domain objectives is presented in the format of a Self-paced, career path module. A career path refers to the growth from career exploration to career identity. A module is habitually composed of four parts: objectives, pretests, learning environments, and posttests. Criterion-referenced testing (CRT) is contrasted with norm-referenced testing (NRT). CRT stresses mastery and scoring in terms of measurable achievement. Examples are given of CRT items and scoring keys. NRT stresses position in the tank order of a group. NRT is not recommended as an effective measure of career path progress. Diagnostic pretest questions help readers identify needed sections of this document while mastery posttests help readers verify correct comprehension and application of criterion measures. This document is designed for the educator who wants to develop CRT career measures but has a limited budget and timetable. (Author/BJG)
