Designing a System for Managing Assessment in Competency Based Teacher Education Programs.
Baird, J. Hugh
This is a worktext for assessment management system planners designing competency based teacher education programs. The worktext exercises are based on the following eight questions, which need to be answered specifically as an assessment management system is planned: (1) What information (data) is to be used in making decisions about trainee and/or program? (2) Who uses the data and for what purpose? (3) Who is to collect the data? (4) How often are data to be collected? (5) What instruments and procedures are to be used in collecting data? (6) When are data needed and how often? (7) In what forms are data to be kept and/or displayed for those who use it? and (8) How are decisions and judgments communicated to those persons who need to know? Two principles are suggested as guides when working through the exercises: (1) Parsimony--In making a decision, don't collect any more designing competency data nor involve any more persons than are absolutely necessary; and (2) Involvement--Those affected by a decision should be involved in making it.
