Criterion-Referenced Test (CRT) Items for Air Conditioning, Heating and Refrigeration.
Davis, Diane, Ed.
These criterion-referenced test (CRT) items for air conditioning, heating, and refrigeration are keyed to the Missouri Air Conditioning, Heating, and Refrigeration Competency Profile. The items are designed to work with both the Vocational Instructional Management System and Vocational Administrative Management System. For word processing and test-item generation purposes, the item bank is available separately on an IBM-compatible disk. A list of references used for air conditioning CRTs appears before the table of contents. Each item in the bank is identified by eight fields: unique item number, duty area and task number (Missouri competency profile), letter of correct answer, source (author, year of publication), date, learning domain (cognitive, affective, psychomotor), writer(s)/reviewer(s), and accompanying artwork. The CRT items are categorized into 12 duties: safety, basic refrigeration, tubing and connections, basic electricity, controls, domestic refrigeration, commercial refrigeration, residential/light commercial cooling/heating, diagnosing and problem solving, fundamentals of air conditioning, customer sales and relations, and leadership. Each duty is further divided into from 1 to 30 tasks. (YLB)
