MODAS. Feasibility Study for Implementation of V-TECS Occupational Data Analysis System (ODAS).
Illinois State Occupational Information Coordinating Committee, Springfield.
This feasibility study was conducted to determine if the Michigan Occupational Data Analysis System (MODAS) can be implemented or modified in Illinois by studying the information needs of state agencies and local educational institutions. Agencies were asked how they might use the MODAS system for activities such as curriculum development and identification of transferable skills of displaced workers and skills for new and emerging occupations. The system was reviewed to determine its coverage of Illinois occupations and programs and how MODAS might relate to existing occupational information systems in Illinois. The study found that the MODAS system may be useful in Illinois, but some changes will have to be made first. Suggestions were made concerning the expansion of the system and possible modes of delivery. Recommendations were also made about the implementation of the system in the state; timelines for a proposed phase-in of the system were constructed; and potential staff requirements were determined.
