"Shop Card" and Student/Teacher Evaluation of Proficiency

Part of Lesson Plan: **Tire Mounting Part 2 (updated) by Robert Thayer

Activity Overview / Details

Once a student has successfully dismounted and mounted a tire, I ask the student what steps or techniques upon which he/she feels could be improved. If you and the student feel that he/she is proficient, punch the student's shop card next to where it says "Tire Changing".  

If the student fails to successfully dismount and mount the tires, takes an unacceptable amount of time to complete the task, violates any safety rules, or if the student's efforts result in any of the following: 

  • A damaged bead
  • A damaged rim
  • A leaking tire
  • Damage to the tire machine

the student should repeat the entire procedure, until proficiency is achieved. This could be done on another day that the student wishes to work in the shop.
