Southern Association of Colleges and Schools, Atlanta, GA.
This volume contains the initial draft of a model for assessing students in vocational education programs in Georgia. Addressed in the first section of the draft are some of the components that are believed to be critical in the development of a model for assessing vocational student achievement, including selecting a program for use in developing the model; verifying duties, tasks, performance objectives, and guides; processing tasks; adopting or adapting tests; developing criterion-referenced tests (CRTs); editing written or performance tests; and administering tests. The second section of the draft, consisting of some of the formats and information necessary for the use of the model, deals with topics such as criteria for selecting an occupational area, developing a questionnaire for use in verifying tasks, specific topics that are covered on given existing vocational achievement tests, standards for evaluating CRTs, procedures for defining testing specifications, and guidelines for developing testing administrative manuals.
