A Comparison of Competency Based Approaches in Educational Administration.
Metzer, Christa; Demeke, H. J.
CCBC Notebook, v4 n2 p. 6-8 February 1975
This paper compares several existing competency based models in educational administration with each other and with statements about administrative competencies found in the literature. The models are compared according to their underlying concepts, their definitions of the meaning of competence, and their procedures for identifying competencies. The conclusions reveal that competencies generally contribute to effective performance; are interrelated with behavior; exist in patterns; have affective, skill, and knowledge dimensions; and are defined in process terms. The various models generally agree on the identification of administrative tasks, the need for levels of attainment, and the similarity of competencies in various administrative positions. The author concludes that there are a sufficient number of common elements in the various competency based models to make the development of a theoretical model feasible. (DW)
