Assessing Occupational Competences--A CAEL Handbook.
Sharon, Amiel T.
A model for assessing specific competences acquired in work situations, and for relating these skills to occupationally oriented degree programs, is presented. The Work Assessment Model is designed to help a college specify the competences acquired, define the learning objectives of occupational and career programs, and translate the competences into appropriate college credits. This model is applied to three fields: data processing, law enforcement, and secretarial science. Prototype assessment instruments--including detailed check lists, performance tests, rating forms, and interview questions--are appended. (Author/MV)
