SCANS/TEJAS Compendium. Test of Employability: Job Aptitude & Skills & TEJAS Learning Modules.
Richland Coll., Dallas, TX.
This SCANS/TEJAS document is a compendium of tests developed to assess basic workplace skills identified by the U.S. Department of Labor's Secretary's Commission on Achieving Necessary Skills (SCANS). Designed primarily for use in community college classes, the SCANS/TEJAS tests can be used to assess what individuals know (cognitive domain) as well as what they do and value (affective domain). To measure the latter, there are 13 learning modules: (1) allocating money resources; (2) applying systems knowledge; (3) applying technology; (4) communicating information; (5) demonstrating appropriate social skills; (6) displaying creative thinking and problem solving skills; (7) displaying integrity and honesty; (8) displaying self-management skills; (9) exercising leadership; (10) exhibiting decision-making skills; (11) exhibiting listening skills; (12) negotiating conflict resolution; and (13) organizing information. These modules can be used for group instruction or individualized learning. They are not subject-matter specific so they can be adapted to any curriculum, with adjustments for education or reading level. The document contains the SCANS/TEJAS test itself, including self-check and practice activities, learning experiences, and a do/don't list. (AS)
