Teacher and Parent Assessment of Employability/Life Skills.
Kallio, Brenda R.
This study examined the relationship of teachers' and parents' ratings of the employability skills of 15 students (ages 8-16) with multiple disabilities. Five teachers and 14 sets of parents used the Ohio Employability/Life Skills Assessment, Parent Form to assess student mastery of employability attitudes and skills. Significant differences were found on ratings of relations with supervisors and relations with peers; no significant differences were found on ratings of quality of work, general work habits, task-related skills, quantity of work, relationship to parent, and work attitudes. The study concluded that there is no difference between teacher ratings of students and parent ratings of the same employability characteristic. (JDD)
