Hill, Raymond; And Others
This project was conducted to provide state-adopted Career Merit Achievement Plans (Career MAPs) and program guides for selected trade and industrial programs in Florida. The plans and guides were intended to provide each comprehensive high school, area vocational-technical center, and community college with authoritative guidelines for planning, establishing, and conducting new courses and programs, and/or for changes thereto. These Career MAPs and program guides would provide a standard basis for planning course content, determining teacher certification and qualification, designing facilities and equipment requirements, and for determining other support resource requirements. Specifically, the project developed the following products: (1) 2 copies of recommended changes to program standards for each of 20 occupations; (2) 2 copies of Career Merit Achievement Plans (Career MAPS) for each of 9 occupations; and (3) 2 copies of program guides for each of 20 occupations. The procedures used to achieve these objectives were to establish advisory committees, review the literature, recommend changes to update program standards, design Career Merit Achievement Plan models, and develop program guides. It is intended that the products, when implemented, should result in better programs, improved planning for vocational education programs, an improved means for documenting student achievement, and an improved means for identifying teacher updating needs.
