Pre- and post-tests are used to measure knowledge gained from participating in any of Concepcion Vocational School’s program. Active learning strategies include students are engaged in activities (e.g., reading, discussing, and writing) i.e., involved in more than passive listening, greater emphasis placed on developing student skills.
Students can receive immediate feedback from their instructor; students are involved in higher order thinking (analysis, synthesis, and evaluation). Although the complexities of developed skills have increased as programs technically advances, the methods of teaching must be tailored to the needs of the students. Trainers need to learn about the latest techniques and theories of skills-based education.
Mr.Rico D. Briones, CVS’ Vocational Instruction Supervisor introduced paper less pre-test and post-test, through this, pre-test and post-test, lecture method of instruction gradually decreases and allows students more time to focus in developing their skills.
Active learning involves students in doing things and thinking about the things they are doing. The electronic pre-test and post-test intends to bring in a change to the passive way of teaching skills-based with no active participation by the students by introducing pre- and post-tests. The intention of administering a pretest before the lecture was to both analyze how much the students are aware of the topic and most importantly to make the students be more focused to the skills and a post-test after the lecture was to evaluate students learning of the key concepts of their chosen program.
