This book has significant value to all managers, engineers, academicians, researchers and postgraduate as well as undergraduate students in the field of engineering and technology. It covers fundamentals, design implementation, prototypes and testing results of measuring psychomotor skills with in-depth illustrative discussions and up-to-date references. It is useful as a reference book for academicians in engineering and technical universities, colleges and institutions for their effective way of measuring the hands-on skills of undergraduate students for laboratory exercises. In the industrial sector, it is also a useful reference for managers and engineers in charge of evaluating the ability or performance of their technical personnel. In addition, this book will appeal to academicians, engineers, or as a library reference in the area of psychomotor skills assessment and its integration with other technologies to develop comprehensive solutions in providing industrial-ready graduates.
Thus, this book is expected to motivate academicians and undergraduate students to be aware of the importance of acquiring practical intelligence during their time in the institution. It described the process of measuring psychomotor skills including the implementation, assessment and evaluation of student practical intelligence learning outcomes. The process of developing a measuring instrument within the laboratory syllabus is also described and illustrated through examples. The steps of preparing the instrument with methods and tools are described and illustrated through examples as well. Although the process is illustrated through courses in electrical engineering, the processes and steps illustrated in this book are general and can be applied to any engineering and non-engineering field.
