This learning module on performance-based vocational education (PBVE) in South Carolina is one of nine developed for use in training administrators, teachers, and prospective teachers in the utilization of Vocational-Technical Education Consortium of States (V-TECS) catalogs of performance objectives, criterion-referenced measures, and performance guides. Readings are provided on the following subject areas: accountability as a tool for improvement; implementing PBVE; the ideal, fully individualized, self-paced approach; and a systematic approach to implementing PBVE in South Carolina. A case study to critique is also included. Examples of module behavioral objectives are these: be able to give two reasons for an interest in performance based education; three major approaches to implementing PBVE; three major concepts involved in PBVE; and two scheduling techniques facilitated by PBVE. A glossary of terms, a glossary self check, and a model critique of the case study are provided. A personal self-check list entitled, "Do you really have a performance based program?" concludes the module. (An instructor's handbook--CE 017 440--for use with all the modules contains the checkout activity which consists of multiple choice, matching, and classifying questions keyed to the behavioral objectives stated at the beginning of the module. The modules are designed for use with individuals or with groups.) (JH)
