About Book

Book Description
Describes and analyzes new practices for assessing student performance in vocational education.

From the Publisher
Student assessment has always played an important role in voca-tionaleducation, and recent changes in assessment practices mayhold great promise for vocational educators. A RAND study wasconducted to examine alternative forms of assessment from the per-spectiveof vocational educators. Two products resulted. The first isthis report, which describes a variety of assessment alternatives, re-viewsexamples from extended case studies, and discusses criteria forchoosing among the alternatives. This report should be of interest tovocational educators at the state and local level, particularly those re-sponsiblefor decisions about the form and use of assessment sys-tems.The second product is a set of training materials to help voca-tionaleducators make effective decisions about assessments. Thesematerials are to be offered as a supplement to Getting to Work: AGuide for Better Schools (Rahn et al., 1995), a recent National Centerfor Research in Vocational Education (NCRVE) training package.
