A Research and Development Project in Occupational Education: The Development of Process Models for Decision-Making in Curriculum Development and Evaluation. Final Report of Phase I.
Borgen, Joseph A.; Davis, Dwight E.
Concern for quality vocational education programs and a decision-making system for curriculum development and evaluation led to the implementation of this four-phase project. The initial phase of the project involved: (1) a review of literature related to the development and application of process models to curriculum development and evolution, (2) the identification of consultants and resource agencies to be utilized in initial model development, and (3) future project planning in relation to project objectives, the involvement of state and local personnel, project testing and evaluation, dissemination, and budgeting. Curriculum models reviewed by the investigators included the objectives model, the product development model, the accreditation model, and the management-system model. One of the major recommendations of this initial phase called for a further investigation of the literature with respect to management systems in order to identify and compare their rationale, components, and elements. Also included in the report are the Project Proposal--Phase I, Consultants and Agencies Identified during Phase I, and Personnel Qualifications. (Author/JS)
