This assessment packet contains all materials to assess a student's competency in personal development. The purpose of the tests at the state level is to demonstrate achievement in knowledge associated with work and family life competencies. Used by the classroom teacher, the results can indicate a program's strengths and weaknesses and serve as a tool for curriculum improvement. At the student level, scores can indicate a student's relative level of proficiency in knowledge associated with work and family life competencies. The packet contains the following materials: instructions, one master copy each of form "A" and "B", one master copy of the work and family life assessment answer sheet, one answer key for each of the enclosed assessments, and one score summary sheet for summarizing student scores and returning to the Ohio Department of Education along with the Family and Consumer Sciences Annual Report. The two forms ("A" and "B") are completely different but equal test forms. The Personal Development and related Resource Management assessments have a common core (12 items), as well as items specific to either personal development or resource management (28 items), for a total of 40 items.
