Development and Evaluation of an Experimental Curriculum for the New Quincy (Mass.) Vocational-Technical School. First Quarterly Technical Report.
Morrison, Edward J.
Technical activity from April 1 through June 30, 1965 was concentrated in behavior analysis and guidance program development. The behavior analysis involved identifying 1,051 jobs as candidates for inclusion in the training program and grouping them into 30 sub-families on the basis of task similarities. Data necessary for decision to include the jobs in training were collected for 288 jobs and task enumeration was completed for 115 jobs. The appendixes contain (1) a description of the general procedures used to select jobs, enumerate the tasks required in each job, and identify other important job requirements, (2) sample forms used in the behavior analysis process, (3) the general plan being followed in developing the guidance program, (4) a description of the present guidance program in the Quincy Public Schools, and (5) a list of the educators and scholars comprising an advisory panel to provide technical review, guidance, and counsel for the project. At its first meeting, this panel gave major consideration to defining instructional objectives. Other reports are available as VT 001 393-001 397, VT 004 848, and ED 013 318. (HC)
