The Oklahoma State Department of Vocational and Technical Education Curriculum Laboratory Grant. Research Project in Vocational Education. Final Report.
Tuttle, Francis T.
The goals of the project were to strengthen the curriculum management capabilities of the Oklahoma Curriculum and Instructional Materials Center (CIMC); to expand its efforts toward curriculum management in career education through coordination of efforts in development, dissemination, and diffusion; and to maximize resources for curriculum management through coordination of efforts in development, disemination, and diffusion. The CIMC conducted several activities to meet these objectives: together with the Research Coordinating Unit, 34 instructional units of curriculum materials were field-tested to determine if the objective-based instructional unit was an effective learning technique; it coordinated efforts with industry in curriculum development to carry out its career education activities; and the Ten-State Curriculum Network was formed as part of the National Network for Curriculum Coordination which focused on new developments in curriculum technology. Over two-thirds of the document contains favorable third-party evaluation of the project and related appendixes. The project's considered to be strong points were field-testing and revision of curriculum materials and workshop planning. The evaluation was conducted through team meetings; meetings with key CIMC and State personnel, instructional staff involved in piloting career education materials, and the project's advisory committee; and a project audit.
