Selected Essays on Modeling and Measuring Professional Competencies
302 Seiten, Dissertation Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München (2017), Softcover, A5
This book contributes to the international discussion about the development of theory- and evidence-based performance assessments in the fields of VET and higher education. It focuses on two professional 21st Century Competencies demanded from todays labor market: intra- preneurship competence and competencies in consuming empirical research. A variety of validity criteria have to be met in order to ensure the design and implementation of meaningful educational testing.
The three essays contained within this book show how selected validity-related challenges can be overcome as regards measuring competencies. The validity criteria primarily discussed are (1) content validity, (2) cognitive validity, and (3) structural validity.
Of course, other eminent criteria of validity, which are not the focus of this book, have to be thoroughly addressed when designing performance assessment instruments. External, consequential, and generalizability aspects of validity are, however, touched upon briefly in the third essay of the manuscript. With respect to structural validity, it should be mentioned that it has not only been proved empirically for CCER, but also for IP competence. As the ECD constitutes a valuable approach in the design of performance test instruments, all three papers are in line with its internationally appreciated principles. Each of the three studies primarily addresses one of the models of the ECDs conceptual assessment framework: essay 1 focuses on the student model, essay 2 on the task model, and essay 3 on the evidence model.
