A Plan for the Updating and Implementation of Performance-Based Vocational Education Material. Final Report.
This final report presents five products of a health occupations project conducted (1) to update health occupations data, (2) to field test a performance-based curriculum in secondary programs, and (3) to develop materials (domain-referenced tests) to predetermine student and/or job incumbent competencies prior to entrance into a developed vocational program or job title. The three shortest reports include a summary of the advisory committee, secondary students' field test for medication aide curriculum, and evaluator's report of the field test. A fourth report, the summary of job title survey and health occupations education cluster matrix, includes the original and revised Indiana Health Occupations Cluster matrices, survey materials, and survey data regarding five service areas: patient care, dental care, medical-clerical, veterinary, and public health. Approximately four-fifths of the report consists of the domain-referenced tests (DRTs) for the four domains of the medication aide curriculum: prepare oral medications, administer oral medications, apply and insert medications, and instill medications. Major DRT components include task analysis guides, content identification sheets, common subtasks, identified limits of all content, and sample DRTs. Listing of tasks are also provided for two additional domains: medical asepsis and cleaning and weighing and measuring a patient. (YLB)
