The Implementation of a Model Competency Based Graduate Program in Occupational Education Administration: Phase 3: Final Report.
Southern Illinois Univ., Carbondale. Dept. of Occupational Education.
The document reports on a model, performance-based, interdisciplinary program to prepare vocational directors in Illinois. Five objectives in the Occupational Education Administration Model's third year were: (1) field-test the model; (2) develop implementation strategies for a transportable program; (3) provide experiences that would assure the attainment of 159 administrative and leadership competencies to 10 program participants; (4) place all participants in occupational education leadership positions by September 1975; and (5) qualify all participants to receive State of Illinois Level 1 supervisory certification. The degree of achievement of the objectives and the project's procedures are recounted briefly. Participants served internships for a school year, supervised in working on the 159 performances by a local cooperating administrator while completing course requirements for supervisory certification and engaging in enrichment activities. Forty pages offer project personnel information, followed by two three-page sections summarizing the project's evaluation and conclusions. The evaluation data is interpreted as bearing out the project's emphasis on interpersonal proficiency, and the project has prepared employable Occupational Education Administrators, but refinement of the orientation provided the project's instructors is needed. Extensive appendixes (66 pages) include the competency list, the performance assessment system, two followup studies, and a project evaluation. (AJ)
