State of the Art Report on Statewide Student Competency Testing in Vocational and Technical Education, 1988.
Love-Wilkes, Rebecca
This report describes the status of competency testing in vocational and technical education in the United States in 1988-89. Data were derived from a mailed questionnaire sent to State Liaison Representatives of the National Network for Curriculum Coordination in Vocational-Technical Education. Of a total of 69 surveys, 39 responses were returned by mail; for the others, data were gathered by telephone. Some of the findings of the study were the following: (1) 13 of the states or territories are conducting competency testing of students in vocational and technical education--most in the Southeast and Midwest; (2) 9 states or territories said they are in the process of developing such testing; (3) 12 states or territories are considering development and implementation of vocational student competency testing; and (4) 22 states or territories do not anticipate becoming involved in statewide vocational competency testing. A state-by-state summary of the status of vocational competency testing and a list of contact persons in each state make up the majority of this report. The survey form is appended. (KC)
