Abstract

The objective of this project was to develop a set of both theoretical and practical electrical exercises/assessments in the form of a diagnostic test to assist motor apprentices with their course work as well as helping to improve their core skills of basic electricity and electronics during attendance of their ten week, Phase 6 motor apprenticeship off-the-job training course at the Dublin Institute of Technology.

The diagnostic test was conducted in two stages, one at the beginning of the ten week training course and the second one towards the end of the ten week course. Data obtained from the diagnostic test provided useful information regarding strengths and weaknesses in this subject area.
