Georgia Vocational Student Assessment Project. Final Report.
Vocational Technical Education Consortium of States, Atlanta, GA.; Southern Association of Colleges and Schools, Atlanta, GA.
A project was conducted to develop vocational education tests for use in Georgia secondary schools, specifically for welding, machine shop, and sheet metal courses. The project team developed an outline of an assessment model that included the following components: (1) select a program for use in developing test items; (2) verify duties, tasks, and performance objectives; (3) review existing test items; (4) develop criterion-referenced test items; (5) edit test items; (6) field test items; and (7) design a storage and retrieval system for criterion-referenced test items. The project team followed these seven steps to create evaluation instruments. Results of the project were three tests: a 68-item multiple-choice test for welding courses, and 100-item multiple choice tests for machine shop and sheet metal courses. (These tests make up the majority of this document. Workpapers used in developing the tests are included in appendixes to this report.) (KC)
