Summary

This well-organized, easy-to-read text fills a gaping hole in occupational teacher preparation, and will be particularly useful as a reference for first-year teachers. No other texts are written with the introductory instructor in mind. Students will easily follow the logic and appreciate how each of the chapters are related to each other and to principles of learning in general. No one occupation receives a preponderance of attention, so the book is readily used in general occupational teacher preparation courses, as well as those specific to one subject. This text has been used and critiqued by at least 600 students over the last five years, and provides a refreshing approach for those faced with the challenge of testing and measurement in the public education system.

Features

  • Meaningful, hands-on examples from occupational subject matter. Practical suggestions for grading using all kinds of assessment techniques.
  • Chapter on evaluation of instruction provides students with a demonstration of the system for creating a viable evaluation program.
  • Chapter on "Non-Test Assessment Techniques" acknowledges that tests are not the only criteria upon which student performance is measured.
