The Design of Curriculum Guidelines for Educational Ladders Using Task Data. Working Paper No. 11.
Gullion, Christina; Gilpatrick, Eleanor
The Health Services Mobility Study is engaged in the development of generic methodology to analyze health occupations at the professional, technical, and aide level, with the aim of providing a data base that could result in the design of job ladders, curriculum guidelines for educational ladders, and the design of performance evaluation instruments. This working paper opens with a discussion of general problems with existing curricula for health occupations, with special reference to diagnostic and therapeutic radiology, nuclear medicine and ultrasonics. The theoretical framework for the HSMS methodology and the method for preparing curriculum guidelines utilizing HSMS task data are outlined. Finally the impact of the HSMS curriculum guidelines, the various uses to which they may be put, and other possible utilization of the curriculum outlines are discussed. Appendixes provide a brief review of the HSMS task analysis and job ladder design methodology and a discussion of what happens when an institution attempts to change existing curricula or institute new programs.
