A Study of Assessments Designed for Student Success
Delepine, Sidney G., III
ProQuest LLC, Ed.D. Dissertation, University of Phoenix
The purpose of this quantitative study is to compare a new assessment tool, the SkillsUSA Connect Assessment with the NOCTI assessment to determine which test results in more students achieving success. A quantitative study, designed to compare test scores of students taking the NOCTI assessment and new assessments from SkillsUSA, called the SkillsUSA Connect Assessment, helps to achieve this goal. A comparison of test scores from both tests helps to determine which test results in a higher number of students achieving a passing score. The SkillsUSA Connect Assessment will include a modern test designed to test learners using the same methodologies of kinesthetic, audio, and visual learning techniques used during the instructional and learning process (SkillsUSA, 2010). The SkillsUSA Connect Assessment also incorporates the basic multiple-choice test questions in conjunction with drag-and-drop questions in which test takers drag the correct answers to a designated place on the screen and include computer-generated simulations, allowing test takers the opportunity to arrange objects in a logical fashion using a computer.
