Iowa State Dept. of Public Instruction, Des Moines. Div. of Career Education.; University of Northern Iowa, Cedar Falls. Dept. of Industrial Arts and Technology.
The research project was designed to provide data pertaining to performance tasks in specific occupations in various areas of vocational/technical education. The data presented in the document is intended to be used to develop appropriate objectives and curricular content to assist in the preparation of individuals entering the specific photo-offset lithography occupations of layout man, paste-up man, lithographic cameraman, stripper, platemaker, and offset pressman. To discover the tasks and functions required for these job categories, a list of graphic arts industries in Iowa was developed, graphic arts personnel in three cities were interviewed and, from that information, the major instruments used in the study were developed: (1) the Iowa graphic arts industry manpower study questionnnaire (857 sent), and (2) competency validation survey interviews (154 conducted). The study indicates that increased numbers of people should be prepared for production and management opportunities in Iowa graphic arts industries in the next few years with emphasis in the area of offset-lithography in order to meet the employment requirements for the large number of small Iowa graphic arts industries. Appended are: (1) DOT (Dictionary of Occupation Titles) job descriptions, (2) general descriptive information on respondents, and (3) task checklists and survey forms. (LJ)
