Determine Elements to be Tested


DOE-HDBK-1205-97
The following steps should be performed when developing a performance test. The test
development process should:
C
Determine the testing limitations
C
Determine the elements to be tested
C
Determine the conditions and the standards
C
Determine the method of accomplishment
C
Construct the performance test
C
Determine the scoring procedures
C
Pilot the performance test
C
Approve the performance test.
Determine Testing Limitations
The first step in developing a performance test is to review the task and determine the
potential testing limitations. Testing limitations are those factors that can have an impact on
the development or the conduct of a performance test. These may include availability of
time, work force, equipment, and resources. If performance of a task would require more
time than is reasonable, the performance test should be developed using only the critical
task elements. Work force availability can also impose limitations on task performance.
These constraints occur when more than one individual is required for task performance.
Situations occur when equipment or facilities will not be available to support the test. Cost
can also affect performance tests. The cost of performance test administration and its
effect on consumable repair parts should be kept within reasonable limits. Many infrequently
performed tasks cannot be performed for training or testing purposes in the job environment.
Safety is another factor to consider. If the testing of certain tasks would impose
unreasonable demands on the personnel, facility or equipment, test those tasks using
simulation as the method of accomplishment.
