Organizations have been using assessments of knowledge and skill for many years to determine potential aptitude or qualifications for a specific pursuit. For example, aptitude tests have some established predictability in terms of who might be successful in a given job or career. Tests of knowledge may be useful in determining who is eligible to practice in a certain vocational capacity, such as a CPA or a licensed engineer. Referencing Russell’s (2010) discussion, analyze the use of assessments of knowledge and skill to determine declarative knowledge, procedural knowledge and skill, and motivation. Under what circumstances do you believe such assessments are appropriate? Under what circumstances do you believe such assessments are inappropriate? Explain your answer, referencing course readings and other academic sources. Must be 300 words or more.
