The projects were funded to create curriculum and instructional materials for those allied health functions that can appropriately be taught in programs through the associate degree level, and to develop inservice and preservice programs for those health-related occupations in which on-the-job training plays a primary role. The staff, with the advice and guidance of a National Technical Advisory Committee and other expert consultants, determines for each occupation concerned: (1) identification of all possible tasks, (2) verification of tasks, (3) determination of the processes involved in performance and the knowledge and skills required for satisfactory performance of each task, (4) development of behavioral objectives (performance goals), (5) development of curriculum, including consideration of the career ladder concept, continuing education, and attainment of degree objectives and transferability of credits earned, (6) development of innovative instructional materials and instructor manuals in modular form, (7) teacher education and testing of materials, (8) evaluation of student performance in terms of behavioral objectives, (9) production of instructional materials, and (10) distribution of materials. An outline of facility support services and clinical occupations is included. (JK)
