Field-Oriented Competency-Based Training in School Administration.
Licata, Joseph W.; Wilson, Charles M.
Project ROME-FOCUS (results-oriented management in education--field-oriented, competency utilization system) is a field-oriented, competency-based instructional program for school administrators pursuing the sixth-year degree at Valdosta State College. It represents an effort to develop and execute a training program that focuses on a group of 80 competencies. Competency is conceived of as the school administrator's demonstrated ability to identify and solve a high priority problem. The theoretical basis for problem-solving in this project is a model called "consequence analysis." Each program objective is organized in a way that attempts to help the school administrator apply this model in solving an instructional problem in his own school. In this pamphlet, preassessment and postassessment procedures are outlined. An explanation of consequence analysis is presented, followed by a description of the various parts of the ROME-FOCUS instructional program and an explanation of program objectives. (Author/IRT)
