Student Assessment System. Executive Summary Report for the Development of a Student Assessment System.
Scott, Paul; And Others
A project developed and field tested a Student Assessment System (SAS) to aid in the articulation of secondary and postsecondary vocational programs in Georgia. A systematic procedure was provided for determining credit toward advanced placement for secondary vocational students entering a related postsecondary program and for advanced placement of students who have gained experience in the armed services or through on-the-job training. Steps in the SAS included (1) Student investigates postsecondary programs; (2) career decision made; (3) formal application with request for regular entry or advanced placement; (4) if student requests advanced placement, then assessment level decision made; (5) advanced placement based on desk top review, structured interview, domain referenced testing, or comprehensive testing; and (6) student begins training at level reflecting previous training. Assessment instruments for determining advanced placement were developed by an examination of a sample of competencies within the occupational field, through either a structured interview or sampling test. The Student Performance Record was designed as a record listing competencies acquired by the student in a prior training project. Domain referenced tests were developed to document student competency in skill areas not verified through structured interviews. (YLB)
