Better Placement through Better Assessment. Vocational Assessment for Single Parents. Final Report.
Nevels, Vada G.
In compliance with Section 204 (C) of the Carl D. Perkins Vocational Education Act, the Pennyrile Vocational Education Region Two, in Madisonville, Kentucky, developed a formal assessment system to help single parents/displaced homemakers make a realistic choice of curriculum. During the project, assessment instruments were evaluated and purchased, an inservice workshop was provided for guidance counselors and educators from the region's feeder schools, the existing guidance services and area referral service agencies were coordinated with the assessment program, and an advisory committee was appointed to monitor the program. The project for the assessment center evolved into a model that could be modified to serve the needs of single parents/homemakers in most rural areas. (This report contains a synopsis of seven assessment instruments that were evaluated. Each synopsis lists instrument name, describes it, notes the time required to administer it and equipment needed, and the level for which the test is appropriate. Assessment instruments evaluated include the following: Oasis Aptitude and Interest Kits; IDEAS Test Manual and Booklets; "WRIOT" Picture Books and Manuals and Scranton answer documents and forms; Career Decisions Making System; Kuder Occupational Interest Survey; Strong Campbell Vocational Interest Blank; and System for Assessment and Group Evaluation.)
