THEORY

We have a wide range of instruction materials (print and multimedia). A list of instruction materials is available on request.

Instruction content: Instruction is divided into driving and non-driving aspects. Classroom instruction occurs in a non vehicle environment and is composed of non driving units of instruction that cover information about operating a car safely as a first seat driver. Classroom instruction is supported by appropriate visual and audio aids such as slides, films, videotapes, displays, textbooks and written instructional materials, models, charts and mock-ups. Road instruction is supported with appropriate written materials. Simulators and computer assisted instruction will be introduced soon.

THEORY

CLASS

Program Outline and Objectives: A general program outline clearly identifies units of instruction including their broad purpose and general content. Units are designed around a combination of performance, knowledge and skill objectives. Performance Objectives specify what driver trainees can do at the conclusion of instruction, Knowledge Objectives describe what driver trainees know at the conclusion of instruction, and Skill Objectives describe the level of mastery or performance driver trainees must demonstrate at the conclusion of instruction.

Evaluation and Testing:

Classroom and Lab Tests: Written tests and performance assessments are used to test a sample of knowledge objectives for each unit of instruction. Test questions are phrased so that new drivers can answer correctly.

Behind the Wheel Tests: Road or on the streets tests (BTW tests) are used to assess the objectives of this part of training. Routes and road conditions that permit a wide range of observations are applied. Results are recorded on an examination checklist. Weekly evaluations are used and results discussed with the new driver/trainee. Written evaluations are provided and signed documentation of having provided direct feedback is maintained and available on request.
