A Validation Model for Administrative Competencies.
Greer, John T.; Lockridge, Burma L.
CCBC Notebook. The Competency Based Curriculum, v3 n1 p12-18 Jul 1974
This paper presents a model for the identification and validation of competencies, designed as an all-inclusive framework, which may be adapted for specific situations. The criteria for including data in the validation process are as follows: (a) if the data are to be employed in making decisions about individuals or groups, all available evidence should be gathered before attempting to interpret the results; (b) if the data are to be used for prediction or selection, the instruments should be validated in the specific situation for which they are to be employed; and (c) ideas about what is being measured as well as what the instruments measure must change as new evidence is forthcoming. LOGOS (Language for Optimizing Graphically Ordered Systems), used in the development of this model, outlines the processes for meeting the proposed project objectives. The LOGOS model, consisting of two cells--developing competency statements and establishing construct validity and reliability, is outlined at the conclusion of this paper. A 21-item bibliography is included. (PD)
