Competency-Based Curriculum for Articulated Programs in Drafting. A Study for the Articulation of Competency-Based Curricula for the Coordination of Vocational-Technical Education Programs in Louisiana. Final Report. Volume III.
Louisiana State Dept. of Education, Baton Rouge. Div. of Vocational Education.
The curriculum guide for drafting occupations is one of five guides written and field tested in a project to develop statewide articulated competency-based curricula in selected vocational education programs. Contents of the guide are divided into eight curriculum levels, and students should be able to enter the program at the appropriate level of their experience. The first four levels cover basic drafting skills, the fifth is a general knowledge level covering overlapping areas that each specific field has in common, and the last three levels are advanced levels in the fields of: Architecture, Mapping, Piping, Mechanical-Machinery, and Structural Steel Detailing. Related technical subjects and mathematics are offered at all levels. Each level is divided into teaching units and contains a brief description of the unit, performance objectives, and criterion-referenced measures. Following each of the curriculum levels is a list of job opportunities with their corresponding Dictionary of Occupational Titles code number. A three-level strength of materials curriculum is also included along with a bibliography. (RG)
