The Electronics Curriculum. Eleventh Quarterly Technical Report.
Crozier, Patrick W.; Butler, F. Coit, Jr.
Technical activities for the period October 1 through December 31, 1968 are covered. Described are the development, implementation, interim evaluation, and probable future applications of the first and second level electronics curriculums. One hundred and sixty-nine electro-electronic job titles were identified; tasks within these were classified as basic, speciality, advanced, ancillary, or redundant to differentiate them from more elementary or more specialized skills. Objectives containing the knowledge, skills, conditions and criteria were then prepared. Self-study course materials were developed based on the objectives for the first level occupation, General Assembler. Tests were provided for end-of-unit and end-of-course proficiency evaluation. A student-instructor ratio of 18 to 1 proved satisfactory in this situation, which involved most students working in pairs at work stations. "First attempt" performance varied from 100 percent to 24 percent across the performance objectives. The appendix includes a chart of the occupational cluster; sample instructional units; lists of units, objectives, and tasks; and sample tests. (EM)
