Development and Testing of a Nuclear Quality Assurance/Quality Control Technician Curriculum. Final Report.
Espy, John; And Others
A project was conducted to field test selected first- and second-year courses in a postsecondary nuclear quality assurance/quality control (QA/QC) technician curriculum and to develop the teaching/learning modules for seven technical specialty courses remaining in the QA/QC technician curriculum. The field testing phase of the project involved the collection of (1) achievement data from the students (trainees), (2) academic and prior experience data from the students, and (3) curriculum evaluative data from the students and instructors. Seven modules were revised based on field testing data gathered at six test sites. In addition, the following seven specialty courses were developed for use in the second year of the nuclear QA/QC technician curriculum: nondestructive examination techniques I, metrology, welding inspection, civil/structural inspection, mechanical inspection, quality assurance practices, and nondestructive examination techniques II. A total of fifty-three modules were developed for the seven specialty courses. (Appended material includes the revised field test plan, the final revised field test plan, a listing of field test sites, statistical data on the pretest and posttest used for field testing, and a list of the course modules and objectives.)
