Learning Assessment in Vocational Evaluation.
The purpose of this document is to help vocational evaluators understand (1) how the concepts of learning and performance relate to vocational evaluation; (2) why learning assessment is important; and (3) how it may be incorporated into work sample testing. The text is divided into three parts. Part 1 defines the learning assessment process. Part 2 provides the rationale for learning assessment by discussing the following reasons: assuring performance testing readiness; providing instruction; improving client awareness; and providing benefits for job placement and training. Finally, part 3 presents the procedures for practicing learning assessment. These procedures include methods of separating learning and performance, of developing appropriate instructional techniques, and of adapting standardized work sample instructions. (BM)
