Exploring the Needs for Competency Measures in Eight Occupational Fields: Position Reports of Task Forces.
Bergquist, William H.; And Others
These position reports describe the findings of task forces which focused on the need to translate work-related experience into degree or certificate credit at postsecondary institutions. The eight occupational fields examined included Accounting, Agribusiness, Data Processing, Day Care, Electronics Technology, Management, Police Science and Secretarial Science. A task force delineated each field, identified the measurement needs of individuals and postsecondary institutions, identified and evaluated available instruments and procedures, determined the new instruments and procedures that need to be developed and suggested ways to implement new occupational assessment programs.
