Patrick, Edward; And Others
Outlined and evaluated in this paper is the collaborative process used by Project 81 state educational agency (SEA), local educational agency (LEA) and support staff in planning and managing a survey to validate life-role competency statements at twelve pilot sites in Pennsylvania. The project is a Pennsylvania Department of Education competency-based education program; its aim, to redefine the states' goals for public education in terms of the competencies needed by young people to function effectively in society. Survey methodology answered the Project's need for a standard, reliable, cost-effective procedure for obtaining generalizable opinion data pertinent to community referenced goal and priority setting. The validation survey allowed the community to review and assign values to proposed competencies. Initial survey conceptualization, tryout/revision, final design, and implementation processes are described and appended together with a partial summary of survey results at a sample pilot site.
