A Study of Curriculums for Occupational Preparation and Education. (Scope Program: Phase I). Progress Report 3.
Tuckman, Bruce W.
The major objective of the Study of Curriculums for Occupational Preparation and Education (SCOPE) is to coordinate and contribute to national curriculum development at the secondary school level. SCOPE programs attempt to increase the relevance of high school education for the majority of students who must seek employment or further job training upon graduation. This progress report outlines recent accomplishments toward the initial phase project goals which include: (1) Establishing communication among the State-supported vocational curriculum development centers; and (2) developing a model for classifying educational objectives in terms of performance requirements and objectives rather than subject matter. The classification task required specification of behavioral objectives within the cognitive, affective, perceptual, and psychomotor domains. The appendix includes: (1) Definitions of classification model categories; (2) sample student performances for classification model categories; and (3) questions which will be used in the future SCOPE study on the effects of ability grouping in the public schools.
