Simpson, Bruce; And Others
These performance tests for the area of allied health occupations/practical nursing consist of a sampling technique (domain referenced tests) which covers all the possible performance situations. When used in total, they may also serve as a comprehensive test. Introductory materials discuss domain referenced testing, determining the domains, and developing performance testing situations. For each domain an item form sheet is provided which is a list of rules for developing a domain referenced test (DRT). It includes a domain statement describing the behavior and content of the domain; instructions, giving directions on how to determine an appropriate testing situation; content limits, including facets and elements of potential test and identifying the allowable content of a DRT; and additional information, such as sample test situations, list of tasks/skills included in the domain, and theory related to the domain tasks. These domains are covered: (1) basic patient care (skin care), (2) isolation, (3) digestive tract, (4) medications, (5) burns, (6) surgical/chronically ill, (7) circulatory system, (8) nervous system, (9) musculoskeletal system, (10) respiratory system, (11) endocrine/urinary system, (12) maternal, (13) newborn, (14) infant, (15) sensory organs. A domain/task matrix and a student performance record conclude the document. (DRTs for theory and a task-detailing booklet are available separately as CE 027 742 and CE 027 740.) (YLB)
