Skills Assessment Module (S.A.M.): A Unique & Practical Approach to the Assessment Process.
The Skills Assessment Module (SAM) is designed to assess special needs students' affective, cognitive, and manipulative strengths and weaknesses in relation to vocational skills required in various training programs within a school system. Initial sections outline procedures and techniques (including paper-pencil tests, hands-on skill modules and work behavior rating) and administration guidelines for SAM. Twelve hands-on modules are then explained in terms of purpose, materials, activity, verbal cue, interpretation, and scoring: (1) mail sort; (2) alphabetizing; (3) etch-a-sketch maze; (4) payroll computation; (5) patient information memo; (6) small parts; (7) ruler reading; (8) pipe assembly; (9) O rings; (10) block design; (11) color sort; and (12) circuit boards. Additional information in the manual includes test interpretation guidelines, technical information, reporting forms, and an instrument to measure learning styles. (CL)
