It describes some of the essential elements of a well-constructed or "model" work sample (as defined in Vocational Evaluation and Work Adjustment Association [VEWAA]-Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities [CARF] Vocational Evaluation and Work Adjustment Standards with Interpretive Guidelines and VEWAA Glossary. Seven elements of the model work sample are discussed: (1) appropriateness to client population, (2) work sample purpose, (3) relationship to available labor/training market, (4) work sample orientation (job description and test information), (5) administration, (6) scoring, and (7) learning assessment.
