The Home Health Assisting (HHA) program was developed specifically for use by educational agencies which offer a program in HHA upon approval granted by New York State Education Department through the Joint State Agency review and approval process. It is designed to prepare adults for work in the home under supervision of a health-care agency. A collection of sample objective test items and performance test exercises used as a pretest or a measure of student achievement are presented in the areas of: the concepts of the world of work and of home health and personal care services, communications and interpersonal relationships, housekeeping and management services, nutritional status of patient and family, personal and patient care services, specialized health care services, and recognition of special patient handicaps. Items should be adapted, revised, or omitted in accordance with local programs.
