               INSTRUCTIONS: In the column titled 'Cognitive/Written Test' place the number of questions from the Test Bank that are used to evaluate the applicable JPR,
               RK, RS, or objective. In the column titled 'Manipulative/Skill Station' identify the skill sheets that are used to evaluate the applicable JPR, RS, or objective.
               When the Portfolio or Project method is used to evaluate a particular JPR, RK, RS, or objective, identify the applicable section in the appropriate column and
               provide the procedures to be used as outlined in the NBFSPQ Operational Procedures, COA-5. Evaluation methods that are not cognitive, manipulative,
               portfolio, or project based should be identified in the 'Other' column.
