Evaluating the Performance Test


DOE-HDBK-1205-97
Test Directions
Prior to conducting a performance test the instructor should provide the trainee with
directions and an overview of the performance testing process. These directions should
provide the trainee with clear and complete instructions as to what the trainee will be
allowed to do, and when the instructor will allow the trainee to do it. The instructor should
explain under what circumstances he/she will stop the trainee if conditions such as safety of
personnel or equipment arise.
Conducting the Performance Test
The completion of the task is not the only indicator of the competence level of the trainee. It
is important to observe the methodology as well as the outcome of the performance test.
Some typical questions that the instructor should consider when observing a performance
test include:
C
Were the tools used correctly and in the proper sequence
C
Were the necessary reference materials obtained
C
Were non-critical steps performed in the proper order
C
Was the trainee confused by any portion of the performance test
C
Was the equipment manipulated in a deliberate and timely manner
C
Was the trainee aware of equipment status (e.g., did he/she recognize when a
pump was running or when a valve was open)
C
Were safety rules observed when performing the task?
Complete testing of the knowledge and skills requires the instructor to question the trainee
during the performance test; however, the instructor should not ask distracting questions.
All questions should be related to the task. The instructor may ask the trainee to "talk
through" the task as he/she performs it. This technique reduces the number of questions
the instructor needs to ask and allows the instructor to stop the trainee before he/she makes
a serious mistake. The questions may be written in the evaluation standard (preferred
method) or generated by the instructor during the performance test.
