Development and Validation of Psychomotor Skills Test for Assessing Students Industrial Work Experience Scheme in Micheal Okpara University of Agriculture

The study was carried out to develop and validate psychomotor skills test for assessing students during students industrial work experience scheme in Michael Okpara University of Agriculture, Umudike.. Two research questions were posed for the study. The study adopted the research and development design. The population of the study was all Bachelor of Agriculture (B.Agric) programme students involved in students industrial work experience scheme in the 2016/2017 academic session in Micheal Okpara University of Agriculture, Umudike. The sample of the study was 400 Students which were selected from the three college offering Bachelor of Agriculture(B.Agric) programme, as the sample size was selected using the proportionate stratified ramdom sampling technique purposively selected.  The instrument for data collection was the Psychomotor Skills Test For Students Industrial Work Experience Scheme (PSTFSIWES). The instrument was face and validated using the rotated component matrix to establish the construct validity. Internal consistency was established the using the cronbach alpha. The result of the analysis shows that the psychomotor skills test for assessment students during students industrial work experience scheme in universities of agriculture was valid since the factor loading on the instrument from 0.35-0.70 and the reliability of the instrument which was determined by cronbach alpha was found to range from 0.71-0.86. Based on the findings of the study, it was recommended that the universities should integrate the use of the instrument for students in Agricultural programme and the instrument should be adopted and adapted for use in other practical-oriented courses for process assessment of students in psychomotor skills.
