A Testing Perspective on the Curriculum. A Teacher's Guide for Proficiency Examinations in Technology Education: Communication Systems, Production Systems, Transportation Systems.
New York State Education Dept., Albany. Div. of Occupational Education Programs.
This information booklet is intended to serve as a companion document to the course syllabus for technology education in New York. It will assist teachers in developing lesson plans that address performance objectives, supporting competencies, and subsequent testing. It first provides important information to teachers, guidance counselors, and administrators regarding the purpose, development, and administration and scoring of the statewide proficiency examination in technology education. Students entering grade 9 who pursue approved sequences in occupational education must take and pass proficiency examinations in order to earn a Regents or local diploma. A blueprint and examination format illustrate the percentage of questions on the examination from topics in each of the three systems courses: communications, production, and transportation. A representative sample of questions selected from modules and topics within each technology education systems course is provided. The curriculum guide portion corresponds to the syllabi for the three courses--communications systems, production systems, and transportation systems. For the communications systems course, a list of questions or examples is provided which directly correspond to the supporting competencies of each performance objective. These are intended to help the teacher clarify and understand the main focus of the performance objectives. For the other two courses, a list is provided of that content that the student must know for each of the performance objectives. Amount of time to be spent on each objective is suggested. (YLB)
