The report describes a model competency-based, graduate level, administrator education project designed to produce career education leaders at all educational levels whose expertise is based on competencies earned rather than on hours spent in a classroom. The first chapter of the report identifies four means of securing competency (prior experience, internships, individualized study, and complementary learning experiences) and five competency areas (general administration, program planning, personnel, public relations, and student services). In addition, it discusses the instructional packages developed for each competency. Chapter 2 presents biographical information on the 17 program participants and the various staff members who took part in the project. Chapter 3 discusses objectives, the internship in educational administration, and the independent study and individualized instruction options. Project conclusions are discussed in Chapter 4. Nearly two-thirds of the document consists of instructional materials utilized in the program: Ramp Anderson items outlining areas covered in the instructional packages (general administrative, program planning, personnel, public relations, and student services) and sample Administration by Competency (ABC) instructional packages covering these competency areas. Also appended are an intern log form, internship checklist, and other program-related materials. (JR)
