Nine Performance Procedure Competencies with Which to Analyze, Organize, and Develop Hands-On Performance Evaluation.
Alvir, Howard P.
This document contains a number of processes and criteria levels with which the progressive test writer should be familiar in order to measure more than cognitive success. These processes allow test writers to examine existing paper and pencil examinations in order to sound out implications for performance testing. Hands-on performance testing is referred to as criterion-referenced testing (CRT) in the psychomotor or performance domain. This is one step beyond paper and pencil tests (PPT) which function mainly in the cognitive or knowledge domain and hardly ever at all in the performance domain of practical application. It should be sufficient for the typical test writer to work through these processes and criteria levels with two or three examples in order to derive maximum benefit. This experience will sharpen the purposes, yardsticks, and repertories of experienced test writers enough to enable automatic application of these processes and criteria level without the necessity of constantly referring back to this procedures manual. This document is intended to help develop better hands-on performance evaluation instruments. (Author/DEP)
