Test Administrator Job Aid

Job aids support work processes by serving as guides to help direct or enlighten performance (Rossett & Gautier-Downe, 1991). Job aids do not take the place of training, instruction or the tools that are needed to perform a particular work function. The key idea associated with the value of a job aid is that knowing how and when to use one is possible only after the individual has received the requisite training, practice and feedback that lead to the acquisition of job skills. Job aids are like the “code book” that an electrician uses in the field to handle a wide variety of tasks in accordance with state and local ordinances. A template for a test administrator job aid is offered here.
