An Assessment System for Competence Based Education: The Educational Development, Dissemination, and Evaluation Training Program.
Hood, Paul D.; Blackwell, Laird
This manual provides a description of the development and a guide to the use of the assessment resources developed in connection with the Far West Development, Dissemination, and Evaluation (DD&E) Functional Competence Training Program. The document concentrates on a user-oriented description of the content, validation, and use of the final version of the assessment system. DD&E is a competence-based professional development program providing a flexible array of training resources concentrating on entry level skills and knowledge required in DD&E. Chapter 1 describes the system, its design concepts, content, assessment methods, and overall use. Chapter 2 provides a detailed description of program planning assessment, including establishment of the student record file and the use of the DD&E Diagnostic Instrument. The development and validation data on this instrument is also summarized. Chapter 3 describes program progress assessment methods, discusses general guidelines for developing product ratings, and illustrates a student progress record matrix. Chapter 4 is concerned with existing competence certification. It describes and summarizes the field validation of a model Competence Assessment Battery that may be used to certify skills in "instructional product development". Three assessment methods are employed: ratings, knowledge tests, and job sample tests. Field test data indicate that the tests are valid in terms of content validity and in terms of ability to discriminate between subjects with and without actual product development/evaluation experience.
