A Field Centered Competency Based Education Model.
Weatherman, Richard; Dobbert, Daniel
This paper describes a model of field-centered competency-based education utilizing multidisciplinary methodology and individualized instruction. Although the model was developed as part of an administrative preparation program for special education administrators, it is a general model with potential for wider application. The model uses a multidisciplinary approach employing goal analysis, job analysis, and an anthropological study to develop instructional and assessment objectives. Assessment in the model involves domain-referenced pretesting and posttesting and simulations of actual field conditions. Besides discussing examples of specific program procedures and implementation, the authors employ a systems approach to clarify the model's basic phases and components. (Author/JG)
