Abstract:

Results of the project indicated that the concept of functionally integrated performance tests is a feasible one. But revisions need to be made before the test can be implemented in the field. The test must remain experimental until reliability issues are resolved. The test is perhaps too costly to use for ongoing proficiency evaluation programs, but may be used experimentally, as a best possible criterion for examining the relevance of other measures of job proficiency. The functionally integrated performance test may also be viewed as a comprehensive test of the jobs, from which samples of the job can be selected for use in lower-cost tests. But optimal methods for sampling from the item pool have not yet been developed.
