Development of Technology Teacher Certification Examination in Taiwan.
Lee, Lung-Sheng Steven
A project was conducted to develop assessment instruments for the living technology (LT) teacher certification examination in Taiwan. Living technology is a secondary-level comprehensive experiential program that addresses technology, its evolution, applications, and impacts. During the project, LT teacher competencies were identified and verified, and secondary-school LT technology teacher certification examination approaches were identified. Both DACUM (Developing a Curriculum) and Delphi approaches were used to identify and verify a job file for secondary LT teachers. Eight duties and 46 tasks were identified, and competency-based certification examination approaches were described. The development process and standards created were somewhat similar to the Ohio model curriculum standards, which are also competency-based. In addition to aiding the development of assessment instruments, the job profile can be used as a tool for developing curriculums, creating teacher examinations, reviewing programs, recording progress, and assisting in career development of persons in the field of technology teacher education in Taiwan.
