Review and Synthesis of Research: Analysis for Curriculum Development in Vocational Education. Research Series No. 46.
Larson, Milton E.
This "state of the art" paper is intended to provide researchers, curriculum development specialists, and practitioners with an authoritative analysis of the literature in the field. Major sections include: (1) Background and Structure, (2) Resource Materials, (3) Sources of Content Information for Analysis, (4) Types and Techniques of Analysis, (5) Translating Content into Courses of Study, (6) Building Curriculum from Analysis, (7) Systems Approach to Building Vocational Curriculum, and (8) Trends and New Directions. It was concluded that more serious considerations must be given to: (1) increasing the use of analysis as the foundation for vocational curriculums, (2) codifying and defining terms used, (3) developing common understandings of effective processes of analysis, and (4) accepting procedures found to be functional by other vocational services. A suggested approach to providing validated vocational curriculums would be the establishment of a center(s) for the unique purpose of curriculum building. Such a center would need: (1) a competent staff with command of the total process of analysis and curriculum building, (2) hardware, including computers and software, and (3) effective dissemination methods.
