VOCATIONAL COMPETENCIES NEEDED FOR EMPLOYMENT IN THE FEED INDUSTRY, A REPORT OF RESEARCH SUPPORTED BY THE MICHIGAN STATE ALL-UNIVERSITY RESEARCH FUND, 1963-64.
CLARK, RAYMOND M.
A PILOT PROGRAM CONDUCTED AT PIGEON, MICHIGAN, IN 1962-64 INDICATED A SERIOUS LACK OF MATERIALS FOR PROVIDING AN INTEGRATED INSTRUCTIONAL PROGRAM FOR TRAINING PROSPECTIVE WORKERS FOR NONFARM INDUSTRIES AND BUSINESSES. THE FEED INDUSTRY WAS CHOSEN FOR A PROJECT WHICH WOULD--(1) ANALYZE THE FUNCTIONS PERFORMED IN THE INDUSTRY, (2) DETERMINE THE COMPETENCIES NEEDED BY WORKERS AT SOME LEVEL, (3) BREAK THESE DOWN INTO UNDERSTANDINGS, SKILLS, AND ABILITIES WHICH COULD BE USED BY EDUCATORS IN DEVELOPING TRAINING PROGRAMS, AND (4) GROUP THESE INTO INSTRUCTIONAL UNITS. EDUCATORS ISOLATED FUNCTIONS AND COMPETENCIES, AND REPRESENTATIVES OF MORE THAN 75 PERCENT OF THE LIVESTOCK FEED INDUSTRY IN MICHIGAN VALIDATED AND RATED THE IMPORTANCE OF THE COMPETENCIES. IT WAS CONCLUDED THAT THIS APPROACH OF ANALYZING A TOTAL INDUSTRY WAS A PRODUCTIVE ONE, AND THE DATA COULD PROVIDE THE BASIS FOR TRAINING PROGRAMS FOR STUDENTS OF DIFFERENT LEVELS. TABLES SHOW (1) RATINGS OF COMPETENCIES UNDER EACH FUNCTION BY REPRESENTATIVES OF THE FEED INDUSTRY, (2) TEACHER RESPONSE TO ADEQUACY OF SUGGESTED UNDERSTANDINGS, SKILLS, AND ABILITIES FOR DEVELOPMENT OF THE COMPETENCIES, (3) COMPETENCIES IDENTIFIED AS IMPORTANT FOR EFFECTIVE JOB PERFORMANCE BY WORKERS IN THE FEED INDUSTRY, AND (4) OUTLINES OF INSTRUCTIONAL UNITS WHICH MAY BE USED TO DEVELOP THE COMPETENCIES.
