Competencies for Articulation: Procedures Manual.
Southeast Community Coll., Lincoln, NE.; Lincoln Public Schools, NE.
Competencies for Articulation materials have been developed by public schools, an educational district, and a community college in Nebraska to help vocational education students progress from one level of educational training to another and to employment. Their progress is to be measured by "competencies," each of which has three parts: (1) a statement of the task; (2) the conditions and limitations that apply to performing the task; (3) the criteria for measuring successful performance of the task. The use of competencies in describing student capabilities provides reliable information to place students on the correct educational level, and provides an index of personal qualifications for employers to use to match persons with specific job requirements. This procedures manual is intended to help persons become familiar with the process for developing competencies, or to adapt already developed competencies to local situations. It explains the needs and purposes of the project, procedures, development of a student outcome section, verification of competencies, and recommended adoption procedures. Components in the Competencies for Articulation series include competency lists and materials for drafting, electronics, health occupations, office occupations, carpentry, welding, and auto mechanics--see note.
