Suggested Guidelines for Developing and Implementing a Minimum Competency Program in Citizenship.
Virginia State Dept. of Education, Richmond.
Guidelines are presented to assist school divisions in implementing the accreditation requirement of the Virginia Board of Education for minimum competency assessment in citizenship for all high school graduates. It is assumed that local schools or divisions have established goals and objectives for social studies programs which may serve as a beginning point for selecting minimum citizenship competencies, and which should reflect knowledge, skills, commitment, and action. Local school authorities may choose to develop the criteria by which citizenship competencies may be judged. Evaluation methods may include actual performance situations, simulated performance situations, school products and performance, and paper and pencil examinations. Advantages and disadvantages of each assessment technique are mentioned. A suggested model program for assessment is presented including a list of goals, related competencies, and performance indicators. (Author/CTM)
