Industrial Mechanics Assessment and Planning Manual.
Oregon State Dept. of Education, Salem.
The revised manual is designed to assist industrial mechanics teachers in assessing the strengths and weaknesses of their industrial mechanics program and planning for future development. With industrial mechanics being one of the major occupational clusters in Oregon, schools are being encouraged to implement industrial mechanics programs to meet present and future manpower needs. The manual recommends a planned approach for program development that is based on a Portland high school model program. Assessment charts are used to examine the status of various program elements: curriculum, planning, interdisciplinary instruction, advisory committee, work experience, facilities and equipment, student organization, inservice, individualized instruction, articulation, evaluation, instructor selection and responsibility, finance, safety, and guidance/counseling/placement/followup. Assessment steps 1, 2, 3, and 4 include reviewing the manual standards, assessing the present implementation of each element, assigning an implementation level rating to each question and element, and completing a profile chart. Steps 5, 6, and 7 cover identifying problems, selecting problems for higest priority for solution, and sorting remaining problems into additional priority levels. Other charts are included for problem solving and detail planning. (EA)
