Report of the Project to Assess Needed Competencies in Community Education 1976-77.
Mott (C.S.) Foundation, Flint, MI.; Arizona State Univ., Tempe. Southwest Regional Center for Community Education Development.
The Southwest Regional Center for Community Education Development conducted a series of workshops to identify and field test competencies deemed essential for the superintendent, district coordinator, principal, and building-level director of community education. These workshops generated a data bank of validated competency statements and related information and permitted an initial trial of an on-the-job assessment procedure. The Quadrant Assessment Model (QAM) was used by teams of administrators to analyze the interrelationships of their roles, pinpoint weaknesses in role specifications, identify role conflicts, and identify situation-specific competencies. Descriptive statements of competencies needed for community education had been generated, refined, and validated in an earlier study. In this project it was determined whether or not those who perform as superintendents, principals, district coordinators, or building directors in community education districts could employ a competency statement to make judgments about the importance of a given competency to performance in the role, where the competency could best be attained, and the level of proficiency required in the competency. These determinations were used in developing the ideal profiles of needed competencies for the four specified roles. (Author/MLF)
