Analysis of Vocational Student Performance Criteria on Work Skills Based on Industry Needs: An Analysis for Students' Skill Test Instruments
Keywords:Vocational education; construction services; students’ work skills
A vocational high school (VHS) is intended to equip students with job skills. The work skills of VHS students must be relevant to the industry needs. This research was to determine the student performance criteria on work skills based on industry needs. This research uses a quantitative descriptive research approach. Research data was obtained through instruments distributed to participants. The research instrument was designed according to a job description of reinforced concrete beam structures. There were 112 VHS student participants involved in this research. This study found that the student performance criteria on the work skills of concrete structure work include several types of work, namely casting work, formwork, reinforcement work and scaffolding work. The student performance criteria obtained in this research can be a supporting component of the VHS student work skills test instrument because they are in accordance with industry needs. The VHS student work skills test instrument is intended to determine whether students are competent. The work skills of VHS students can be assessed from the 'show how' and 'do' competency levels as the basis for assessing student performance. Student work skills will be relevant if students are given real learning experiences through student practical work directly in the industry as a form of theoretical and practical collaboration.
