Performance-Based Professional Education Curricula. Final Report. Volume I. Curricula Development. Research and Development Series No. 139.
Hamilton, James B.; And Others
Documenting the processes and procedures, this report reviews phases of development, testing, and revision of 100 modules in a set of performance-based teacher education (PBTE) curricular materials. The first of two chapters discusses the need to develop a professional development program for vocational education teachers. A two-phase process is described: phase 1--identification of performance requirements of conventional program teachers; and phase 2--identification of performance requirements for cooperative program teacher coordinators. The findings are the origin of 384 performance elements and a set of related performance oriented general objectives. Chapter 2, divided into 7 sections, discusses curricular development, testing, and implementation. Section 1 describes the cooperation of institution/agency representatives in module development. Section 2 examines the preliminary module testing and results. Module revision procedures are outlined in section 3. Section 4 summarizes the advanced testing design and procedures. The fifth section provides model publication background. Module refinement, based on advanced testing feedback and publisher needs, is described in section 6. The final section reviews dissemination activities. Appendixes contain samples of the cooperative development stage module, data collection and synthesis forms, preliminary and advanced test versions, and revision procedures/quality control devices, and module titles and associated performance elements. (Volume 2 of the final report, which is a report of research, and a module development handbook are available as separate documents--see note.) (CSS)
