The Human Resources Certificate of Advanced Mastery Curriculum Framework and Statewide Articulation Projects. A Senate Bill 81 Project of the 1993 Oregon Legislature.
Southwestern Oregon Community Coll., Coos Bay.
In 1993, the Oregon Legislature funded six curriculum development projects to design frameworks for integrating academic content with technical skills, work behaviors, sample teaching activities, and assessment strategies appropriate to the state's Certificates of Advanced Mastery (CAMs). This report describes results for the six projects as of fall 1995, the projects' ending date, and presents materials developed. The first section provides background information on the legislation, Certificates of Initial Mastery and CAMs, and goals of the project related to curriculum development, articulation, and cooperation among high schools, community colleges, four-year colleges and universities, business and industry representatives, and parents. The bulk of the report presents results for the six CAM Curriculum Frameworks, covering the areas of arts and communications, business and management, health services, human resources, industrial and engineering systems, and natural resource systems. Except for the section on the arts and communications curriculum, each section provides information on the purpose, design, and development of the framework, as well as on proficiency standards in the curriculum. In addition, the section related to the human resources curriculum provides information on efforts to articulate the curriculum with secondary schools and community colleges. The final section provides a user's guide to the CAM Information Network, an electronic bulletin board established by the project to disseminate information on the curricula. (TGI)
