A Procedure for Development of Competency-Based Performance Statements and Module Development for Use with Inservice and Preservice Education.
Zito, Alan; Gross, Bernard
The developmental procedures used in constructing a competency-based, student teacher/in-service program are described in this report. These procedures evolved from redesigning the St. John Fisher College Teacher Education Program to include behavioral objectives. The five steps employed to provide these objectives were: a) stating a goal; b) setting down performance statements or activities to define the goal; c) identifying true performance statements; d) describing each performance statement in relation to knowledge, performance, product, affective, and experiential objectives; and e) modifying these statements to assure the achievement of the goal. From the stated behavioral goal, modules were constructed. The characteristics of an instructional module were that: a) fitness should be the focus of the program; b) objectives should be behavioral; c) diagnostic and instructional materials, and assessment techniques, should be provided; and d) the package should be self-contained. Some questions used in critiquing the module are presented. The appendixes include information on definitions, performance statement identification, a systems design for development of performance statements, and a programmed system for modular development.
