Competency Index for Graphic Arts Programs in Missouri. A Crosswalk of Selected Instructional Materials against Missouri's Competency Profile.
Missouri Univ., Columbia. Instructional Materials Lab.
This index was developed to help graphic arts instructors in Missouri use existing instructional materials and keep track of student progress on the VAMS system. The list was compiled by a committee of instructors who selected appropriate references and identified areas that pertained to Missouri competencies. The index lists competencies in these 15 areas: processing job orders; preparing customer layouts; typesetting; producing camera-ready copy and mechanicals; exposing with a camera; processing film and printed material; contacting; performing image assembly operation; proofing; making plates; press operation; finishing operations; paper handling; packaging and preparing for mailing; and performing specialty operations. Each competency is then listed in a matrix that identifies where it appears in one or more of the six texts and one videotape set selected to be used in the course. (KC)
