5 General Guidance Performance Test Information This performance test supplement is based on the 2013 Edition of NFPA 472; Competence of Responders to Hazardous Materials/Weapons of Mass Destruction Incidents and provides the detailed performance test checklist items required for candidate testing. Performance tests should not be conducted until the candidate has successfully completed the academic portion of the course by successfully passing the End of Course final exam at an Air University approved test control facility (TCF). However, it is strongly encouraged that this supplement and the checklist it contains be used during the normal course of study. Candidates may practice the performance tests at any time during study and up until testing is conducted. Practice is highly encouraged. This particular course uses thirteen workstations. Within each workstation there are several tasks and objectives ((NFPA line items). A Performance Summary Sheet precedes each workstation or group of evaluated tasks. This sheet lists the NFPA line items evaluated and the specific tasks to be accomplished. Each performance test lists the setting and tools/equipment needed for the listed tasks. Many of the performance test tasks for the Hazardous Materials Technician require the completion of forms, letters, and other authority having jurisdiction documentation items. These performance tasks must be completed in a proctored environment. Ideally, the candidate should be allowed the use of a word processor (computer) and necessary research documents as they are identified in the tools/equipment section of the performance test. The proctor s primary responsibility is to monitor the student s work to ensure that the candidate is completing their own work, had not previously completed the task and is simply downloading the work and that the candidate is not using any form of checklist to ensure all elements of performance test are completed. Evaluators must be a DoD, IFSAC, or NPQS certified Hazardous Materials Technician (with at least one year of on-the-job experience). Evaluators should review the checklist paying specific attention to any Candidate/Evaluator notes. Scenarios developed should be as realistic and complete as possible. A minimum of two scenarios must be developed for each performance test requiring one. This allows for the candidate to retest in case of first time failure. Additionally, scenarios should be changed periodically to dissuade future candidates from gaining an unfair advantage or allowing for test compromise. Remember, official performance test notifications must be made ten days prior to the actual performance test or the candidate s performance test results will not be accepted by the DoD Administrative Center. For specific program guidance see DoD Manual Your performance test notifications must be made using the following web site. It is important also to understand the grading process used during the evaluation. Additional information on grading criteria is provided Grading Information section. Hazardous Materials Technician Performance Test Supplement v

6 Performance Test Information Evaluator Orientation You should read and understand the following orientation information before entering the specific skill station you will be evaluating. If there is any information within this orientation that you do not understand, you should contact the examination coordinator for clarification. We would like to thank you for donating your valuable time to assist with the evaluation of candidates in the practical examination. Your role as a skill station evaluator is critically important. You are to serve as an observer and recorder of the candidate's actions based on the criteria listed on the score sheet. There are a number of ways to successfully perform a skill. You should always remember that the way you were taught to perform a skill is not the only correct way to perform the skill. The ultimate criterion for successful completion of a skill is: "Was the final outcome met for the parameters set?" This is a formal examination and not a teaching situation. We discourage excessive dialogue between the evaluator and the candidate. Peripheral or "nice to know" areas of should not be discussed. Situations or questions that require you to demonstrate a procedure should be avoided. You should not ask leading questions. Do not condemn or condone a candidate's actions by expression, gesture, tone of voice, or attitude. Often, candidates interpret a word or action delivered in jest as being indicative of pass or fail, a value judgment, or a non-caring attitude. Pay special attention to verbal and non-verbal language. The reason you were asked to be an evaluator for this station is that your expertise adds to the credibility of the examination and gives you the knowledge to ask the candidates related questions to substantiate or define an action. If qualifying questions are necessary, they should be asked at the end of the station. At no time should you discuss any phase of the candidate's performance with the candidate. Candidates are allowed to perform each skill once. If they appear overly nervous when first starting the exam, you may stop them and allow them to collect themselves before starting again. However, once a candidate initiates a course of action the candidate must be evaluated on the merits of that singular performance, as would happen in the field. You must provide qualifying information in the comments section of the score sheet for any performance that is identified as a mandatory failure item. Visitors are not allowed in the testing area while testing is being conducted. The examination coordinator may be in the testing area if they are not obstructive to the testing. You must document in the comments section the reason you marked a mandatory failure item. Additional comments are welcome, but remember to be specific. Instead of writing "He did a poor job", write exactly what the candidate did right or wrong. At no time should you discuss the performance with the candidate. You should never condemn or condone the candidate's actions by verbal or nonverbal means. If the candidate reaches the time limit indicated on the score sheet before completing the procedure, you must stop the candidate and direct him/her to return to the staging area and wait for instructions to report to the next station. All tasks not completed should be scored a zero in the "points awarded" column. Be very aware of the importance of consistency in giving instructions, setting up scenarios, and making and recording observations. Every effort should be made to ensure that all details of the examination scenario are identical for each candidate. Be aware of your own fatigue and if necessary take a break after notifying the examination coordinator. You should have received individual written instructions concerning the specific skill and/or skill station you will be evaluating. If you do not understand any part of these instructions, do not start the evaluation process. Contact the examination coordinator for clarification. It is important also to understand the grading process discussed in the next section used during the evaluation. vi Hazardous Materials Technician Performance Test Supplement

7 Grading Information Performance Test Information The following grading criteria will be used to evaluate and determine the pass/fail status of a candidate. Each of the performance test checklists contains an attainment standard. In this particular course the attainment standards are set at approximately 80% using an X out of X format while also containing a time limit. For example, an attainment standard may read, Successful completion of at least 15 out of 18 items within 90 minutes. If for some reason a particular element/step or standard cannot be completed and the candidate s installation cannot simulate or create the item, then the evaluator may mark the item Not Applicable (N/A). The evaluator must then re-adjust the score by multiplying the remaining checklist items by.80 to determine the number correct required. For example, a performance test requires that 12 out of 15 items be successfully completed and 2 of the 15 items are marked N/A then the evaluator must multiply the remaining 13 items by.80 (13 x.80 = 10.4 or 11). The new required minimum passing score is now 11 out 13 items. There are a total of thirteen (13) skills performance test encompassing 35 separate tasks. Candidates must successfully complete and pass 11 of the 13 skills performance tests with no more than one (1) task failure within any skills performance test. --AND-- Where the Performance Test Checklist is given a rating, the following criteria will be also be used to determine the pass/fail status of a candidate. Critical (C) - This rating has been assigned to items, which, if omitted or performed incorrectly, would result in severe injury to, or death of, an individual. Should a firefighter fail to perform any one item rated as Critical (C), the firefighter would be unsuccessful in demonstrating the required proficiency level for that standard. Major (M) - This rating refers to any item that is very important to the general safety of personnel and the successful completion of the evolution. Should a firefighter fail to perform any three items rated as Major (M), the firefighter would be unsuccessful in demonstrating the required proficiency level for that standard. General - This rating although there is not symbol, has been given to all remaining items that in combination are relevant to the successful completion of the evolution. Should a firefighter fail to perform any four items rated as General, the firefighter would be unsuccessful in demonstrating the required proficiency level for that standard. Should a firefighter fail to perform any combination of Major or General rated items resulting in a sum total of four (4), the firefighter would be unsuccessful in demonstrating the required proficiency level for that standard.
