Common Affective Domain Competencies of Students Among Vocational Areas: A Mini-Grant Research Project. Final Report.
Porreca, Anthony G.; Stallard, John J.
The study attempts to verify the affective competencies which vocational-technical areas in common require of students, and to validate those required in agriculture, business and office, distributive, home economics, and industrial education. The affective competencies were identified so that they might be a major part of the learning sequence, not merely incidental, and provide a basis on which to establish common experiences among vocational education programs. The competencies, elicited by review of vocational education publications, were verified by randomly selected employers, employees, and teachers. Their degree of commonality was validated by 48 State vocational directors, through the Delphi technique. The study concludes that: (1) State directors appear to agree that the five vocational areas do require common affective competencies; (2) teachers, employers, and employees appear to agree with directors on what constitutes affective competencies; (3) they appear also to agree on which are important for career success; (4) affective competencies appear to provide a commonality for the five areas; and (5) the common affective competencies appear to be as important as cognitive and psychomotor competencies. Tables comprise the largest part of the report. A research instrument, a condensed version of Bloom's taxonomy of educational objectives, and sample study correspondence are appended. (Author/AJ)
