Teaching Teachers to Develop Competency-Based Instructional Programs.
Higgins, Norman; And Others
The Competency-Based Instruction (CBI) course at Arizona State University was designed to teach preservice and inservice teachers how to develop the components of a CBI program. They were taught how to: (1) divide a program of their choice into instructional units, (2) write instructional outcomes for the instructional units, (3) prepare materials for assessing pupil attainment of the instructional outcomes, and (4) prepare plans for providing information and practice needed to attain the instructional outcomes. These comprised the first four units of the course, while a fifth unit provided an opportunity to apply these procedures to a second instructional unit. Course materials and procedures were designed to teach these competencies. In a tryout of the course 95% of those who participated attained a competence of at least 70%. The course was revised to include eleven competencies, some changes in assessment procedures, and use of self-instruction materials. (Author/LS)
