Alseddiqi, Mohamed and Mishra, Rakesh (2011) Measuring the effectiveness of an on-line school-to-work transition module. In: The International Conference on E-Learning in the Workplace ICELW 2011, 8th-10th June 2011, Columbia University, New York, USA.

The paper proposes a framework to measure the effectiveness of an on-line module for school-to-work transition in a Technical and Vocational Education (TVE) system. The module was developed on the basis of educational outcomes (TVE objectives) and industrial companies' requirements. It has been taught to a pilot group of Electrical and Electronic Engineering TVE students in Bahrain. The implementation phase was carried out during the school-based learning before the students joined the work placement program. The findings indicated that the pilot group’s performance in the school-based learning was better than the control group’s performance which was exposed to traditional teaching and learning methodology. The affective domain competencies can be taught and assessed more effectively with the on-line module. The framework proposed can evaluate the effectiveness of the on-line module in providing stake-holder’s requirements reasonably well.
