Final Report to Automotive and Petroleum Curriculum Research--Phase I.
A project was conducted to (1) identify all the competencies that are most essential for the most common first-level jobs in the field of automotive and petroleum, (2) identify the common career ladders and the most important criteria for promotion in the field and (3) prepare a curriculum guide that includes a provision both for teaching the essential competencies and helping students to be aware of career opportunities and promotion criteria for the field. Major project activities included conducting a feasibility study, reviewing competencies, developing a panel to identify essential competencies for first-level positions and promotion criteria, completing task analyses, prioritizing the competencies, and developing career material to use for interviewing and for the first draft of the curriculum guide. As a result of the project, 238 competencies were identified and prioritized. In addition, career ladders were identified, and a written narrative on careers in automotive and petroleum was developed. (Appended material includes the list of prioritized competencies, automotive and petroleum industry career information, and the evaluation instrument used in the project.) (LRA)
